Insulin Needles: Everything You Need to Know

Over 35% of people in the United States struggle with obesity. An additional 32.5% of Americans are overweight. With more than two-thirds of the United States population struggling with their weight there has to be a simpler solution- thankfully there is one.

Human chorionic gonadotropin (HCG) injections have been known to help burn unwanted fat. The biggest barrier to utilizing HCG as a fat-burning tool is managing the injections.

In order to ease the needle injection process, people have begun using insulin needles to administer HCG. Keep reading to learn more about insulin needles and how to inject yourself with HCG.

How to Administer HCG with an Insulin Needle

With a subcutaneous needle, you can inject your HCG on the go. A syringe is a hollow tube with a plunger on one side and a needle on the other. Users will draw the HCG out of a vial with a syringe and then inject it into the body.

It is best to find an injection site that has some fatty tissue on it. When injected, HCG needs to go into the fat under the skin. When doing a body injection, you need to pinch the skin and put the needle in at a 45ยบ angle.

As you push the needle into the skin, you can let go of the pinched skin. Slowly push down on the plunger to push the HCG into your system. To prevent leaks, you should leave the syringe in place for 5 seconds before pulling the needle out.

Insulin Needle Thickness

The factor that best differentiates needles is the thickness of the needle. A needle’s thickness is measured in gauge rather than millimeters or inches. By picking the right needle or syringe size, you can minimize pain and avoid scar tissue buildup.

The different syringe sizes are helpful when administering different doses. Intramuscular and subcutaneous injections require different needles. Intramuscular injections are absorbed faster because muscle tissue has a greater blood supply than tissue right beneath the skin.

The higher the needle gauge, the thinner the needle. If you need to inject large doses of HCG, you will want a slightly lower gauge number. This will allow more HCG to enter the body more quickly with a single injection.

Best Needle Injection Practices

You will quickly grow accustomed to giving yourself HCG injections. Whether you are new to injections or not, here are some best practices for insulin needle injections.

  • Make sure to use a new syringe and needle every time
  • Rotate your injection sites
  • Hold for a few seconds to reduce leakage

By following these best practices, you can lower your chances of infection and leaks. Injecting HCG should go quite smoothly once you grow accustomed to it.
