One way to minimize the anxiety of injecting is to put your mind at rest beforehand that it’s not going to hurt. Insupen 33G is the only pen needle which boasts a diameter of just 0.20 mm along its entire length. The reduced diameter, along with being silicone coated and triple sharpened makes for a less painful injection. The needle’s thin wall guarantees a large internal diameter and therefore effective and more comfortable administration. Despite early concerns, short needles can penetrate everyone’s skin gaining access to the subcutaneous tissue where the insulin needs to be administrated. Insulin injections using short needles are also simpler as they do not require you to pinch skin or insert at an incline. www.spirit-healthcare.co.uk
