I have injected insulin for over 10 years, and now at the age of 58 find myself with very shaky hands (still undiagnosed) but in the meantime I'm unable to hit the hole easily for drawing up my insulin. What do those of you who use insulin pens think of them?

I love my Novalog pen. It is so easy to use & to carry with me. I still use Lantus by syringe & keep it in the regrigerator. This is because the 2 bottles look so similar I took the wrong kind one night & had to go to ER. This way there is no mistaking them!

I used them for 4 years and they are a lot more better to use
and that was ten times a day
good luck

I have had insulin pens for over 16 months and i love it. Easy to use costs a little more but i think its worth it
