Insulin therapy is an essential part of diabetes management; all type 1 and most type 2 diabetes patients require insulin at some stage. As injectable therapies such as human insulin, insulin analogues and glucagon-like peptide-1 receptor agonists are used to manage diabetes, correct injection technique is vital for achievement of glycaemic control. Specific recommendations to collate and explain best practices in insulin injecting technique are needed for people with diabetes as well as HCPs. The Forum for Injection Technique (FIT) India acknowledged this need for the first time in India, and worked to develop evidence-based recommendations on insulin injection technique, to assist healthcare practitioners in their clinical practice. These recommendations are described in this communication.
