The Novofine Pen Needle is used for administering insulin into diabetes type 1 patients. Patients with this condition cannot naturally produce their own insulin and require insulin to be injected daily in order to keep the condition under control. The Novofine Pen Needle has been designed to be comfortable (minimizing pain and risk of intramuscular injection), strong (a unique needle design to reduce risk of needle breakage or bending), and fast for a quick and easy insulin injection.
Always check the flow before you begin to inject insulin. This helps to ensure you get your entire dose. Additional information on this can be made available by your doctor. If you are unsure how to inject insulin, ask your doctor for assistance.
