    Glucorx Finepoint Pen Needles

    Glucorx Finepoint Pen Needles are used to deliver insulin to diabetic patients. Insulin is a hormone made in the pancreas. It helps the body use the glucose (sugar) from your diet for energy. Type 1 diabetes causes the pancreas to no longer produce insulin causing extreme fatigue and even possible death. Complications such as heart disease or kidney disease can occur if the condition isn’t controlled correctly. This is where Glucorx Finepoint Pen Needles come in and deliver the required amount of insulin to your blood stream. There are two different types of insulin, one taken once or twice a day and the other taken with food or drink. The one taken once or twice a day is called long-acting, background or basal insulin. This gives the body insulin it needs whether or not you’ve eaten. It’s intended to keep insulin levels stable overnight and between each meal. The other, taken with food or drink, is called fast-acting, mealtime or bolus insulin. This type reduces the sudden spike in blood glucose when you’ve eaten or drank something. It’s usually taken before a meal, snack or drink containing carbohydrates.

    Difference Between Glucorx Carepoint And Finepoint

    The difference between GlucoRx CarePoint and FinePoint is the bevel level on the Finepoint is a 5, whereas the CarePoint is a 3 bevel. Bevels are the slanted surfaces on a needle that create a sharp point. There are typically four types of bevels used for various skin injections. Regular bevels are the most common and are used in the vast majority of applications. Used for intramuscular and subcutaneous injections. Short bevels are designed to minimize unwanted injection depth, such as preventing penetration through a blood vessel, and to obtain speedy withdrawal or dispersion of a fluid. This type of bevel is used in cases of arterial blood gas sampling and nerve blocks. Intradermal bevels are designed to allow for shallow and low angle insertions just below the epidermis. The amount of fluid is usually low and slowly administered. This type of bevel is unique and primarily used for tests involving the skin, such as allergy tests. 5-bevels and 3-bevels are two additional bevels that create a flatter, thinner surface that has been shown to be less painful. Please speak to your doctor if you have been newly diagnosed with diabetes and would like more information on the difference between GlucoRx CarePoint and FinePoint.

    • Never reuse Glucorx Finepoint Ultra; this can cause bacterial growth on the needle and dull the tip, resulting in painful injection and risk of it breaking off / dislodging in the skin.
    • Remove the outer and inner caps carefully so not to bend the needle.
    • Inject insulin when at room temperature.
    • Ensure correct injection technique, penetrate the skin quickly and relax the muscles.
    • Injections of smaller insulin doses hurt less; ask a doctor if doses can be split.

    Glucorx Finepoint 4mm

    It’s not unusual for Glucorx Finepoint 4mm to puncture a tiny blood vessel so some blood appears when injecting. 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 Glucorx Finepoint 4mm on the same site again until the bruise goes. If bleeding has occurred before, consult a healthcare professional on injection technique and/or if another medical problem has presented itself.

    GlucoRx provides a GlucoRx Finepoint Needles compatibility list for compatible glucose pens. The Glucorx Finepoint needles compatibility chart is not an exhaustive list of all compatible pens. Some of the following pens provide Glucorx Finepoint Needles compatibility:

    • Eli Lilly HumaPen Savvio

    Glucorx Finepoint Ultra 4mm

    If it’s hard to press the Glucorx Finepoint Ultra 4mm button or plunger down, clogging may be due to:
    • Small amounts of insulin caught in the needle from previous use. Use new Glucorx Finepoint Ultra 4mm Needles for each injection.
    • Clump in the insulin – make sure it’s properly mixed before drawing it up.
    • Prematurely drawing insulin before ready to inject, causing some to dry inside the needle. Fill the syringe closer to injection time.
    • Dialling excess dosage than the amount of medication in the pen
    If leakage occurs after using Glucorx Finepoint Ultra 4mm Needles, the needle may not be under the 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 blood glucose control. Make sure that the skin fold technique is also being used, release the pinch before the Glucorx Finepoint Ultra 4mm Needles are removed from the skin. Also never carry Glucorx Finepoint Ultra 4mm Needles with the needle already attached. This causes air to enter the cartridge and slow the insulin dosage time
