Needles for the BD Pen:
If you find that using an insulin pen injector is unpleasant, you might be able to solve the problem by changing the needle size. Short, thin needles administer insulin as effectively as longer, heavier needles, according to studies, and may be more comfortable to use. Your healthcare practitioner can assist you in determining whether or whether switching to a new needle is an option for you and which size to use.
Insulin and glucagon-like peptide-1s (GLP-1) are most effective when injected just beneath the skin into fatty tissue, where the body can quickly absorb and use them. As a result, a long needle isn't required. In fact, injecting insulin into muscle tissue causes it to be used up faster than it should, potentially leading to hypoglycaemia. Furthermore, piercing muscle tissue with a needle might result in pain, bruising, and bleeding.
According to studies, the length of the needle has little effect on blood sugar regulation. Needles as short as 4 millimetres [mm]) appear to have no effect on the function of injected insulin and may even have advantages over longer needles because they can't reach muscle tissue, making it less likely that insulin users will forgo self-injections to avoid pain. Some diabetics are concerned that a shorter needle will allow insulin to escape from the injection site, however research has proven that this is false.
