ABSTRACT
The article identifies three factors that people with diabetes should consider when choosing the right insulin syringe. The first factor to consider in choosing the right insulin syringe is the syringe size. Using an insulin syringe with an appropriate size draws up an accurate insulin dose. The second factor to consider is the needle gauge or needle thickness. Also consider the needle lengths which are available in the standards or original half-inch length or the short five-sixteenths of an inch length.
