"  When I was on MDI I used long needles.  It was suggested by the my CDE due to the volume of Lantus I was taking and felt that my absorbtion (sp) would be much better."

Emily replied to Marilyn's discussion 'Short needles or long needles?'
"I still have long ones left over from when I was doing MDI... so when I occasionally need one, that's what I use.  I'm probably going to have to order new ones soon and I'll probably stick with what I have always gotten."

"Marilyn, I used long needles for over 35 years. I changed to shorts 15 years ago so I could hit different spots without breaking in new territory. Worked really well for me. Don"
