Easy, Affordable Tool to Improve Site Rotation
A new product out of Canada helps you remember to rotate your insulin injection sites with simple, color-coded pen needles
We spoke with Amir Farzam, CEO of MontMed (website) about SiteSmart, a new color-based site rotation system for insulin pen users. Read his impressive bio at the end of the article.
If you have type 1 diabetes are using insulin pens to control your blood sugar, you are probably vaguely aware that you should be rotating your injection sites. But what exactly does that mean? And, more importantly, how are you supposed to remember where to inject when you have so many other things to keep track of?
If you are like most T1Ds, you may not know exactly what site rotation entails or how to do it correctly. And even if you do know, you probably don’t do it as often as you should simply because it’s hard to keep track of day after day.
