    Does anyone use the nano pin needles? I have thought about it because my son is so small. He is very skinny. I was wondering how well they work.
    Thanks Connie

    I'm assuming you meant pen needles not "pin" needles.

    We haven't used the nano, but we do use the minis which are 5mm in length.
    We started with the 8mm ones, but switched shortly to the 5mm. Campbell was super skinny at dx, and the minis have worked great for us.

    Hey Connie! We got some samples from our endo's office. Ds really preferred them over the 6mm needles he used previously. Also, the NP told us we don't need to pinch up the skin with the nanos.

    Hope this helps!

    Ditto! We received some samples as well and they said no pinching of skin needed... My son has not tried them yet, but we will soon!
