Encourage Patients to Use a New Pen Needle With Each Insulin Injection

Insulin pen mix-ups and errors continue to cause problems.

Changes in pen devices...or the use of multiple pens that look similar...can lead to mix-ups and blood sugar problems.

Product selection. Check drug names, labelling, and colouring when selecting insulin pens. Humalog KwikPen has burgundy packaging...and could be mistaken for the red packaging on Humalog Mix50 KwikPen.
