Size & Dosage Information
EasyTouch syringes come in various body and
needle sizes to fit every diabetic’s needs and dosages. Body size relates to the
capacity of the syringe and needle size relates to the gauge of the needle.
EasyTouch syringes come in three body sizes:
1cc, 0.5cc (1/2cc), and 0.3cc (1/3cc). This pertains to the overall capacity of
the syringe. The gradation markings for U-100 insulin of each size are:
Size / Maximum Dosage / Scale Increments
- 1cc /100 units / 2 unit increments
- 5cc / 50 units / 1 unit increments
- 3cc / 30 units / 1 unit increments
Generally speaking you should size your syringe
based on your maximum injection dosage. For example, if you are taking 20 units
per shot, you could use either a 0.5cc (50 unit) syringe or a 0.3cc (30 unit)
syringe. If you are taking 60 units, use a 1cc (100 unit) syringe. Since the
markings are wider apart, generally the smaller the syringe size the easier it
is to read.
For example, a 35 unit dosage is easier to read
on a 5/10cc/50 unit syringe than on a 1cc/100 unit syringe. It is easier to read
a 15 unit dosage on a 3/10cc/30 unit syringe than on a 5/10cc/50 unit syringe.
