Are You a Match for the New HumaPen Memoir Insulin Pen?

What is an Insulin Pen? Well it is an insulin injection tool that resembles… you guessed it, a pen. This is great for people who need to give themselves an insulin injection when out in public but do not like it to be noticeable.

The Insulin Pen also contains memory of your last 16 injections. This makes keeping your injections trackable a cinch so that you and your doctor are better able to review your diabetes history. The Insulin Pen records the date, time and the amount of diabetic insulin dose including primer dose.

There is one Insulin Pen available right now named HumaPen Memoir. This pen currently will dispense insulin in whole unit increments. It is made to work with the most prescribed mealtime insulin used in America which is the insulin lispro injection.

Being released in April is an Insulin Pen called Luxura HD which will be able to dispense insulin in half unit increments, after the first unit. This will no doubt be very popular among children with diabetes.

The release of both of these Insulin Pens is a step in the right direction for making the control of diabetes easier. Right now the management of this disease can be quite overwhelming. Current statistics show that less than half of the 15 million patients being treated for diabetes have blood sugar levels within the recommended range. This new tool will certainly help.
