What Can Be Done To Decrease The Pain Caused By Injections?

Generally a shot of insulin that is given to patients that may be suffering from diabetes is not the type of shot that will cause much discomfort or pain when they are given to individuals. However, when a person first begins receiving these types of injections they may be somewhat apprehensive about getting them, and this can be especially true with children who have to begin taking an administered injection of insulin on a regular basis. It is very common for children and especially those that are small to be extremely scared of the thought of receiving any type of shot. However, there are a few things that you can do to lessen the small amount of discomfort or pain that may be felt when these types of shots have to be given. Giving these shots when the insulin is at room temperatures can help a great deal. For those that must be stored in the refrigerator, you can easily take the insulin out of the refrigerator approximately 30 minutes before you plan to administer the injection and this will allow it plenty of time to be able to warm up some. One of the most important things to remember is to never change the direction you are going with the needle as the shot is being given or during the time that you remove the needle from the skin. Another helpful tip is to always allow the skin to become dry after you have wiped it clean using alcohol.
