Needle-free syringes have developed rapidly in recent years. In China, Kuaishuer’s needle-free syringe is an example. Last year, it became the first Chinese independent intellectual property needle-free drug delivery system to successfully debut at ADA (The American Diabetes Association), and this year Won the “Top Ten Medical Devices Award” at the 12th Healthy China Forum. With the continuous innovation of needle-free injection technology, it may be a foregone conclusion that needle-free syringes will replace traditional insulin syringes with needles in the near future.

That’s the trend, but that doesn’t mean giving up on syringes with needles. Looking at the circle of diabetes friends, many people with diabetes who use insulin pens are hesitant to switch to needle-free syringes. After all, the price is higher, and they are worried that they will not get used to it. There are also some type 2 diabetes patients who are not afraid of needles. After intensive insulin treatment, you can take oral medicine. It will be over after you tolerate it. There is no need to spend so much money to replace it with a needleless syringe. People with diabetes who have used needleless syringes have always recommended it. All kinds of news are flying all over the sky, and I am afraid that many novices are confused and don’t know whether to choose needles or no needles. Don’t be confused, just follow the editor and take a look below, maybe it will become clear.

one. insulin pen


1. The operation is simple. Diabetic patients can quickly master the usage skills under the guidance of medical staff. It is easy to learn and use. It is relatively compact and easy to carry when traveling, and can also hide the injection process to avoid embarrassment;

2. The needle is small, usually 4-5mm, which can reduce the pain of injection;

3. It can avoid diabetic ketoacidosis caused by equipment problems.

4. Lower cost

insulin pen


1. The insulin pen injects at least 0.5 units of insulin and cannot achieve microinjection;

2. The needle needs to be changed every time. If you do not change the needle or inject in one place for a long time, it will easily lead to subcutaneous induration, which will affect the absorption of insulin and maintain blood sugar stability;

3. Long-term acupuncture will damage the skin tissue, causing needle holes and pain.

4. Diabetic patients who are afraid of needles or faint from needles will have a great psychological burden, and improper operation may easily lead to needle breakage, infection, etc.

two. Needleless syringe


1. Avoiding pain reduces the resistance of diabetic patients such as fear of needles, making them more willing to cooperate with treatment, which greatly improves treatment compliance;

2. The needle will not break and will not puncture the skin, ensuring aseptic operation to a greater extent and reducing the risk of infection;

3. Needle-free injection enters the subcutaneous tissue in the form of a spray and is diffusely distributed, making the liquid contact area larger, absorbing more efficiently and evenly, and controlling blood sugar better;

4. No subcutaneous induration will occur due to repeated injections

Needleless syringe

Disadvantages: Compared with insulin injection pens, they are more expensive and larger, making them less convenient to carry. The domestic price is about 4,000, and the imported price is about 5,000.

Therefore, no matter which one you choose, you must consider it carefully based on your own actual situation.
