EasyTouch syringes come in various body and needle sizes to fit every diabetic’s needs and dosages. Body size relates
to the capacity of the syringe and needle size relates to the gauge of the needle.
EasyTouch syringes come in three body sizes: 1cc, 5/10cc, and 3/10cc. This pertains to the overall capacity of the
syringe. The gradation markings for U-100 insulin of each size are: Size / Maximum Dosage / Scale Increments 1cc /
100 units / 2 units 5cc / 50 units / 1 unit 3cc / 30 units / 1 unit.
Generally speaking you should size your syringe based on your maximum injection dosage. For example, if you are
taking 20 units per shot, you could use either a 0.5cc/50 unit syringe or a 0.3cc/30 unit syringe. If you are taking
60 units, use a 1cc/100 unit syringe. Since the markings are wider apart, generally the smaller the syringe size the
easier it is to read.
For example, a 35 unit dosage is easier to read on a 5/10cc/50 unit syringe than on a 1cc/100 unit syringe. It is easier
to read a 15 unit dosage on a 3/10cc/30 unit syringe than on a 5/10cc/50 unit syringe.
