What are right ways (and wrong ways) of using insulin?

Don’t massage the site after insulin injection

Syringes used for injection should be compatible with the strength of insulin used.

Always inject into the subcutaneous tissue by pinching an inch of skin. Injections into muscle are absorbed faster and should be avoided.

Swabbing with alcohol is not necessary before injection as long as skin is clean.

Cap the needle after use.

Change the needle after 3-4 times of use.

While sharing in life is good, sharing of needles is not. Don’t share needles.
