Making your initial needle size selection can be important. Please consult your physician or diabetes educator before making an initial selection of needle size, length, or capacity.

In general there are three factors to consider : accuracy of dosage, your comfort level and quality (ie/. consistency) of product.

With regard to accuracy, you should generally size your syringe to your maximum injection dosage. For example, if you are taking 40 units per shot, you could use a 0.5cc/50 unit syringe instead of a 100 cc one. The reason for this is that the markings are wider apart on the smaller syringe. Consequently it is generally easier to read a 35 unit dosage on a 0.5cc/50 unit syringe than on a 1cc/100 unit syringe. There is nothing wrong with doing a 15 unit dosage on a 1cc/100 unit syringe, but remember, being accurate with your dosage leads to better diabetes control.

With regard to comfort level, generally the smaller the needle, the more comfortable. The larger the gauge size, the smaller the outside diameter, and therefore, the smaller the injection hole. .Please note, that the standard length of the 28 gauge and 29 gauge needle is ˝ inch while the 30 gauge and 31 gauges (ie., smaller diameters) are shorter. This shorter needle is required to prevent the much thinner needle from bending. For some, there is positive psychological impact to using a shorter needle, but generally most people quickly find what works for them.

Quality is also a very important consideration in considering needle manufacturers. If there is variation in the manufacturing process, high gauge needles may be difficulty drawing insulin. Other issues might be needles coming without caps or excessive flex. At southeastern Medical Supply, we’ve access various manufacturers products and feel that our suppliers consistently deliver high quality.
