Remind Patients to Gently Mix "Cloudy" Insulins...Even in Pens
The switch of Levemir FlexPen to FlexTouch will bring up questions about insulin pens.
Use this as an opportunity to help patients avoid insulin pen errors.
Changes in pen devices...or use of multiple insulins that look similar...can lead to mix-ups. Tell patients to check the pen's name and color before EACH dose...and ensure they understand device differences.
