As leaders, we need to share this resource with our CBs and LNGs – there are still many who don’t know what it can do for them. Help us increase our reach by sharing your danatech.org knowledge!

New in November—Product Compare
At the top of the products listing page, you’ll see a new button: Compare Products.

Clicking on the button will allow you to choose two different products to see a side-by-side comparison. From that page, you can also print the comparison to use when you are talking to a person with diabetes about their options.

    WHAT ARE POTENTIAL CHALLENGES TO CONSIDER?Vision Issues: To ensure success, accommodations to help someone measure out the proper insulin dose needs to be provided by the care team for those with limited vision.Dexterity Limitations: Additionally, accommodations to help someone measure out the proper insulin dose needs to be provided by the care team for those with dexterity limitations.The user needs to be able to fill the device with the proper amount of insulin every 3 days (or less), attach the device to their body using the reusable inserter, and pinch the 2 sides simultaneously to deliver the dose. Dexterity issues may impact a person’s ability to perform these tasks.Skin Sensitivity: If a person has sensitive skin, having a patch adhered to the skin may require some additional attention to ensure proper skin health and decrease skin reactivity. There are products on the market to help with skin preparation, cleansing, and adhesive removal along with adherents and coverings to keep the patch attached for the wear period.Low Tech = No data: For those working closely with healthcare providers and diabetes care and education specialists, there is no data available to share and review, which can make visits and future recommendations for insulin optimization a challenge. Consider using the CeQur Simplicity with a CGM.

    WHO MIGHT BENEFIT FROM USING A BOLUS-ONLY INSULIN PATCH? A person looking for new options in insulin delivery and who:Is not tech savvy, needs a simple device: The wearable insulin patch provides an option for those who may not be comfortable with technology. Unlike insulin pumps and automated insulin delivery systems, the insulin patch requires no programming, no reliance on digital technology. The user places the device every 3 days and then anytime insulin is required they manually squeeze the sides to deliver a bolus. Prefers discretion: The insulin patch is an option for people who prefer not to inject in front of others. They may skip their mealtime insulin and correction doses when their glucose levels are high. Since the device is attached to the body, dosing can be done discreetly.  Doesn’t want to carry insulin supplies with them: By wearing the patch, the person has insulin with them at all times and can avoid missing doses. Although, as with any insulin delivery method, a back-up plan and supplies are always recommended.Has difficulty or fear using insulin pens or syringes: Individuals who forget steps to using an insulin syringe or pen or find them difficult may find the simple step of pinch grasping both sides of the patch easier. For those with low numeracy skills, the concept of “pinching 5 times” may be easier than “draw up 10 units”. Some people have a fear of needles or would prefer a patch to dealing with a needle stick with every injection.

    WHAT IS A BOLUS-ONLY INSULIN PATCH AND WHO IS IT INDICATED FOR?The CeQur Simplicity insulin patch is currently the only product in this category. The patch is a small, easy to use and teach device that attaches to the user’s skin (typically the stomach) and administers up to two units of insulin on demand by manually clicking its side buttons.The patch is indicated for mealtime and correction bolusing in people with diabetes who are 21 years and older. For those who also need basal insulin, it may be used along with an injected long-acting insulin.
