Product Information

GlucoRx CarePoint Pen Needles

Insulin pens & needles

Always refer to the manufacturer’s instructions when preparing your insulin pen for use. Never share your insulin pen with anyone because of cross contamination risk.

An insulin pen is a convenient, almost painless and discreet way to inject insulin. Some pens use replaceable cartridges, and others use non-replaceable cartridges which must be disposed of after use.

Your healthcare team should help choose the most suitable needle length and insulin pen for you, i.e. depending on which insulin you are using, ease of pen operation, size of numbers on it, your build.

Store unused insulin pen cartridges and pre-filled pens in the fridge. Keep your insulin pen and FinePoint pen needles separate until ready to inject. The insulin should not get warm or be exposed to direct sunlight. Warm to cold causes insulin compression; cold to warm causes insulin expansion.

 

Bleeding at the injection site

It is not unusual for the needle to puncture a tiny blood vessel so some blood appears when injecting insulin. This can be stopped by putting light pressure on the injection site with a cotton ball, without rubbing to prevent bruising. If a bruise appears, do not use that injection site again until the bruise goes. If you bleed frequently, consult your healthcare professional on your injection technique and/or if you have another medical problem.

 

Insulin leakage from the pen or skin after needle removal

If this happens, you may not be leaving the needle under your skin long enough – try to count up to 10 slowly before withdrawing the needle. There may still be some leakage after withdrawing a needle anyway, but this should not affect your blood glucose control.

You should also check that if using the skinfold technique, release the pinch before you remove the needle from your skin. Also never carry an insulin pen with the needle already attached; this causes air to enter the cartridge and slow the insulin dosage time.
