Have I? Haven’t I? When was it? Hmm, I can’t quite remember? It is not an unfamiliar thought that runs through many minds of many people when dealing with Diabetes. Of course we are talking about when we last injected our medication, but more specifically insulin.
Timesulin have created a new product to put in the https://www.bestsellers.bargains/best-first-aid-kits/ the management of diabetes, which offers patients significant relief through an incorporated timer that tells them how long it’s been since their last injection. An innovative ‘smart cap’ marks the first major step forward from the insulin pens that have been a feature of diabetes management since their release twenty years ago.
Timesulin greatly reduces the chances of missed or accidental double dose – a major concern for health care practitioners and patients alike and I am hoping that this will help offer further reassurance as we deal with the daily challenges Diabetes provides us.
One thing that excites me is that we have a company that is trying to innovate within the insulin pen market, especially given when the buzz is in pump/cgm technology. I for one look forward to trying out this product especially as we all know Multiple Daily Injections Rocks!
That’s why the product has already generated excitement amongst established names in the diabetes field in Europe, including Dr Åke Sjöholm, Chief of the Diabetes Research Unit at Sweden’s Karolinska Institutet in Stockholm. “Due to the habitual nature of insulin administration patients often forget whether or not they had injected their insulin dose,” Dr Sjöholm noted. “We regard this as a major challenge in managing diabetes and welcome the timely arrival of an innovative solution like Timesulin.”
At the time of writing Timesulin will fit onto the following products:
- Humalog Mix 75/25
- Humalog 50/50
Novo Nordisk Flexpen®
- Novolog Mix 70/30
- Now supporting Victoza
Timesulin already carries the CE mark, requiring no change in habit and works straight out of the package without any programming required. Retailing at £25 for a pack of two replacement caps, Timesulin will be available to customers throughout the EU, including Spain & the UK, from mid-November 2011.
