I thought you might be interested in learning more about FlexPen®—a different option than vial and syringe.

FlexPen® is:

  • Discreet—Fits in a pocket or purse
  • Prefilled with insulin—No need to draw from a vial
  • Accurate—Dial the amount of insulin you need
  • On the go—Take it with you almost anywhere*
  • Ready to use in just a few steps†

And, FlexPen® is covered by most insurance and Medicare plans.

FlexPen® is available in 3 different insulins—Levemir® (insulin detemir [rDNA origin] injection), NovoLog® (insulin aspart [rDNA origin] injection), and NovoLog® Mix 70/30 (70% insulin aspart protamine suspension and 30% insulin aspart injection, [rDNA origin]).

NovoFine® Needles

NovoFine® 32G Tip fits all current insulin pens and is our thinnest needle available.

Talk to your health care provider about the benefits of NovoFine® and NovoTwist® needles.

Free box of NovoFine® or NovoTwist® needles (up to $60 off the first prescription).*

Free Needles Offer

NovoFine®: One needle for all current insulin pens.

NovoFine® 32G Tip fits all insulin pens and is our thinnest needle available.

The thickness of a needle is called its gauge. The higher the gauge number, the thinner the needle. (For example, a 32-gauge needle is thinner than a 30-gauge needle.) And the thinner the needle, the less you may feel the injection.

In fact, 90% of people surveyed found the NovoFine® 30-gauge needle to be practically pain-free. The needle recommended for FlexPen® is an even thinner NovoFine® 32G Tip needle.

NovoFine® 32G Tip needles:

  • Fit all current insulin pens
  • Have SuperFlow Technology™—designed to improve insulin flow
  • Designed for less pain
  • Made by Novo Nordisk—a leader in diabetes care for over 90 years

How do you inject with NovoFine®?

The needle goes right into the fat underneath your skin. Your insulin will move from the fat into your bloodstream. The NovoFine® 30-gauge needle is only 8 millimeters long, and the NovoFine® 32G Tip needle is only 6 millimeters long, to help you avoid injecting into muscle.

NovoTwist®: Developed in response to physician, nurse, and patient feedback.

NovoTwist pen

Specifically designed for Novo Nordisk pen devices, the “just twist” needle makes needle attachment less time consuming. An audible click confirms attachment. The 32G Tip needle is our thinnest needle available.

Needles are sold separately and may require a prescription in some states. Needles and FlexPen® must not be shared.
