Saturday’s Daily Piece: Not All Clicks Are Equal

Recently, a person with type 2 diabetes shared with her health care provider that she counted the number of clicks to deliver her Victoza dose in a similar fashion as her Lantus dose. For insulin pens, each click of the pen indicates increase of 1 – 2 units of insulin. She understood each click after the first click of Victoza pen to increase her dose by 0.6 mg. However, this is not the case. Education in how to properly use each pen device is key as they are not equal in number of clicks to deliver correct dose.
