The recommendations were published earlier this year in the Mayo Clinic Proceedings, presenting comprehensive, practical guidance for improving insulin delivery in everyday practice. Proper injection technique is critical to achieve better clinical outcomes such as a reduction of HbA1c and glycemic variability. Proper injection technique may be as important as the dose of insulin; if the injection is done incorrectly, even the correct type and dose of insulin may not work effectively. Health care professionals have a crucial role in providing education on the proper use of such therapies. Until this publication, few formal guidelines provide practical recommendations on best practice in insulin delivery. The goals of these recommendations are not only to provide practical guidance and fill an important gap in diabetes management, but to also help ensure comfortable and effective injections and infusions free of complications, as well as improve patient outcomes when implemented in practice.
