    Insulin needle size?

    Hello, I have just started insulin at a very small dosage after spending a tremendous amount of research and educating myself on how to safely use it.

    My question...
    I have a pharmacy grade flex pen fast acting and wounding if the needle size I have is worth while.

    It's a 29g and 4mm in length. My concern was the length of it and if it is going deep enough when I injection in the muscle. I walk really lean so not much fat to get in the way but wondering if I should get a longer needle to be 100% sure it's getting in the muscle. I have notice when I pull out the pen after injection there is a little insulin on the skin where I injected.

    Thanks for the advice in advance

    I think itís fine man- Iím currently using 29g- benefit is not losing your shit in the plunge with other needles.

    If you miss the muscle, itíll eventually get absorbed- so I donít think itís an issue.

    You can use slin pins.Remove the plunger and backload with the pen.

    If I need to pin often I will use slin pins w/ 1/2" needle and back fill. Typically will only pin in shoulders or traps w/ those.
