Type 2 Diabetes Faqs

Common questions about type 2 diabetes: How do you treat type 2 diabetes? When you have type 2 diabetes, you first need to eat a healthy diet, stay physically active and lose any extra weight. If these lifestyle changes cannot control your blood sugar, you also may need to take pills and other injected medication, including insulin. Eating a healthy diet, being physically active, and losing any extra weight is the first line of therapy. “Diet and exercise“ is the foundation of all diabetes management because it makes your body’s cells respond better to insulin (in other words, it decreases insulin resistance) and lowers blood sugar levels. If you cannot normalize or control the blood sugars with diet, weight loss and exercise, the next treatment phase is taking medicine either orally or by injection. Diabetes pills work in different ways – some lower insulin resistance, others slow the digestion of food or increase insulin levels in the blood stream. The non-insulin injected medications for type 2 diabetes have a complicated action but basically lower blood glucose after eating. Insulin therapy simply increases insulin in the circulation.

    Was at the pharmacy to pick up Testosterone Cypionate and the pharmacist sold me 29 gage insulin pins.
    She assured me that these can be used for Testosterone Cypionate and said these are the only ones they sell.
    I'm concerned that she might be wrong
    Please tell me if these can be used to inject Testosterone Cypionate.
    Thank you.

    If you're injecting into sites with minimal subQ tissue (typically quads, delts, bi's) they will work, however, there are a couple concerns.
    1) The oil in the test will typically move very slow through a 29g needle making both drawing and injecting slower.
    2) It is better to inject deep into the muscle tissue. 1 1/2" is typical and for shallow sites a 1" is good. With a 29g 1/2" needle you wont get very deep.
