Carrying an insulin pen will allow you to access a measured dose of insulin when you need it. Those suffering from arthritis or poor grip strength also find using insulin delivery pens such as the Autopen 24 easy because it has a simple one-handed, side-firing button making it easier to inject your insulin dose.
Autopen makes the experience of injecting insulin as easy as possible, especially for elderly users or children with reduced grip strength or dexterity. Minimal force is required to deliver the correct dose of insulin and makes the whole process of self-administering your medication easy.
There is no one-size-fits-all solution to insulin delivery, so it is best to consult with your doctor about which method they recommend you use. Many doctors recommend using insulin delivery pens such as the Autopen 24 because of their ease of use and convenience.
Your doctor will tell you what needle length and thickness to use with your Autopen 24. Needles can range from 4 to 12.7 millimetres in length, but the most common lengths are the shorter insulin pen needles. The thickness of the pen needle you need will be measured by its gauge. The higher the gauge, the thinner the needle will be.
The Autopen 24 is a reusable insulin pen but you must change your needle after each use. Reusing needles makes them dull and this can lead to more painful injections and also an increased risk of bruising, infection and other complications which may affect the delivery of insulin.
