The BD Ultra-Fine™ Nano Pen Needle is 32 gauge, 4 mm (5/32"). It's the shortest insulin pen needle in the U.S. It can be safely used by both children and adults, providing reliable injections with no "pinch-up" of skin required. You should consult with a health care professional before switching to a shorter pen needle.
For use with all Type A insulin pens including:
BYETTA® exenatide injection
HumaPen® LUXURA™ HD
NovoPen® 70/30 mix FlexPen®
Today's insulin needle is thinner and more delicate for greater comfort, so needle reuse can damage the tip and cause injury. To ensure maximum safety and comfort, you should never use a syringe or pen needle more than once.
Use only once and destroy.

BD Ultra-Fine™ Pen Needles fit all diabetes pens and dosers sold in the U.S., including OptiClik® for Lantus® and Apidra®, all Eli Lilly and Novo Nordisk insulin pens, and the pen for Exenatide.
Puncture Resistant Outer Needle Shield
All BD pen needles are...
Engineered with optimal point geometry for maximum comfort and reliability
Coated with special Micro-Bonded lubrication for a more comfortable injection
Manufactured with a special surgical grade of stainless steel
Subject to 100% needle point inspection to assure consistent high quality
Non-toxic, non-pyrogenic and DO NOT CONTAIN LATEX
To ensure an accurate dose when injecting with an insulin pen:
Check the flow of insulin through the needle after loading a cartridge and before every injection.
Attach a new needle before each injection and immediately remove and destroy after the injection. Never carry a pen with the needle attached, as this leaves an open passageway into the insulin cartridge.
If insulin continues to drip from the needle after injections, hold the needle in the skin longer when injecting, to ensure delivery of the complete dose.
Before changing to a shorter needle, consult with your health care professional.
TENS is a non-invasive, drug free method of controlling pain, which uses tiny electrical impulses sent through the skin to nerves in order to modify your pain perception. In most people it is effective in reducing or eliminating the pain.
Electronic Muscle Stimulation (EMS)
EMS works by sending electronic pulses to the muscle(s). This is achieved by sending low frequency electric pulses through muscle tissue causing them to gently contract. In this way the muscles are passively exercised and blood flow is increased
Galvanic Stimulators use direct current, which creates an electrical field over the treated area. The positive pad works like ice, causing reduced circulation to the area under the pad. The negative pad works like heat, causing increased circulation.
IF sends small comfortable electrical impulses through your skin to work on deeper tissue stimulation. The sensation works to prevent pain signals from reaching the brain.
Infrared Light Therapy help the body by delivering specific light waveforms that increase circulation. Increasing circulation helps promote healing, lessen swelling, and helps in reducing pain.
Portable Ultrasounds give advanced pain relief using sonic stimulation of soft tissue cells. They generate pulsed, high frequency sound waves, which travel deep into the tissue, generating vasodilation. This helps increase blood flow to the treated area.
Russian stimulation uses medium frequencies to provide stimulation to muscle groups. This is used to reduce muscle spasms as well as for muscle strengthening. This method was created to produce maximal muscle strengthening effects.
Microcurrent Therapy uses extremely small amounts of electrical current (millionths of an amp) to help relieve pain and heal soft tissues of the body. The electrical current used in Microcurrent Therapy is so small that it is rarely felt.
