I’ve been on Humalog for around six years. I used to be on syringes, then I used it during my pump phase, and now I’m using the kwikpens. My question is: When using the KwikPen, do you notice that some insulin drips out of the needle after injecting?
I inject and even leave the needle in my skin for about ten seconds to make sure all the insulin comes out, but no matter what, every time I take the needle out, maybe a unit of Humalog seeps out the needle and spills down the side of the pen.
Now, what I’m worried about is, if it’s seeping out after I inject, does that mean that I haven’t received my full dosage or am I freaking out about nothing?
Does anyone else who uses the pens experience this?
