New Fast-acting Mealtime Insulin, Fiasp®, Now Approved And Available In Canada For The Treatment Of Diabetes

Faster absorption of insulin key for Canadians living with diabetes Approximately 11 million Canadians live with diabetes or prediabetes and that number is set to increase to more than 13 million by 2026.3 Diabetes can lead to serious complications if left untreated or improperly managed, including heart attack, stroke, kidney failure, blindness and amputation.4 Achieving optimal glycemic control is recommended by Diabetes Canada to reduce the incidence and slow the progression of diabetes-related complications.5 Yet, limiting postprandial (post-meal) glycemic (PPG) excursions has been one of the most challenging aspects in achieving adequate glycemic control.6 Fiasp® is an innovative formulation of insulin aspart that more closely matches the natural physiological insulin response of a person without diabetes, after a meal, compared with NovoRapid® (conventional insulin aspart).7 Fiasp® also has the option of a flexible dosing regimen (up to two minutes before a meal and up to 20 minutes after starting a meal), without compromising overall glycemic control or safety.1,8 "People living with diabetes often struggle to control blood glucose around mealtimes, which can be extremely Continue reading >>

    ok, so im just wondering... is it ok to use the same needle more than once? it will be for me only and will be cleaned before each use.

    Needles start to become blunt after the first use and can damage veins when inserted.

    Yeah, I've used the same 30g rig over 25 times and by the end it was so dull I had to twist and drill it into the vein. Caused massive bruising and all sorts of damage, ended up losing feeling in my left hand for over 2 weeks. I try to avoid using any needle more than 3 times these days; but I prefer to only use a spike once and pitch it. Most IV users can feel the difference between the first and second use of a needle...so find an exchange or drugstore that will sell them to people w/o a script for them.
