Remind Patients to Gently Mix "Cloudy" Insulins...Even in Pens
The switch of Levemir FlexPen to FlexTouch will bring up questions about insulin pens...especially since NovoLog is still a FlexPen.
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.
