I have a pen that can deliver insulin in 0.5 unit incriments, but it is very bulky, and big, and heavy for some reason. It is not a disposable pen, but I am open to them and all other sorts of suggestions. Thank you.

I did some searching for you and found a few Insulin pens that dose in 0.5 units.

Here is my list: Huma Pen Luxura Hd by Lilly, BD mini pen by BD, The following are Jet injectors that deliver in 0.5 units: Advanta Jet by Activa, Medi-jector EZ by medi-ject corp, Vita jet 3 by Bioject corp and the new Novo Pen Echo.

I hope this helps.

Thanks for the response. From my experiences, disposable pens are great too. I started off using the QuikPen by Lilly, and I love it, and still occasionally use them if the situation calls for me to use one, but I found out that other pens had the capability of delivering insulin at increments of one-half units. Thanks once again for the response.
