Syringes and Needles
At Total Diabetes Supply, we know that the right medical treatment tools are imperative for your overall well-being. That is why we offer the necessary needles and syringes to maintain a proper diabetes regimen, at a fair price. The right syringe and needle combination go a long way towards maintaining the right blood glucose levels. This allows for a healthy, active lifestyle where diabetes does not slow you down. Look for the smallest syringe available to hold the largest dose you take daily. You can easily draw up an accurate dose with a smaller syringe, because it is easier to read the markings. If you notice that your largest daily dose comes close to the maximum capacity of a syringe, we recommend that you buy the next size up. This allows you to handle any increases in dose adjustments in the future.
The needle size refers to the gauge (thickness) and length of the needle. We have a wide variety of lengths available, from 3/8 to 1 ½ needles. We also have a wide range of gauges. The higher the gauge, the thinner the needle will be. For example, a 28 gauge needle will be thinner than a 22 gauge needle. We offer needles that range from 18 gauge to 28 gauge. The sharper the needle, the more comfortable the injection is going to be. This means less pain during and after the injection. We also recommend that you use a syringe that you can easily hold with one hand.
When selecting your brand of needles and syringes, the overall consistency and quality of the syringes and needles are very important. If you have to inject yourself with insulin daily (sometimes several times every day) you want to make sure that you use the best possible syringes and needles. The syringes and needles offered by Total Diabetes Supply are of the highest standard and often a preferred choice for healthcare professionals and patients alike.
