Diabetes Care

Access diabetes solutions designed with innovation

Contact Us

BD has leveraged deep expertise and advanced technologies to continuously innovate our pen needles, insulin syringes and other products. Our products are diligently designed to enable people who are living with diabetes to benefit from comfortable, effective diabetes care.

Pen Needles

Take comfort in our needles


BD pen needles leverage advanced technology, innovative design and state-of-the-art manufacturing. Compatible with leading diabetes medication pens in the United States and tested in accordance with ISO standards for compatibility, our pen needles start as flat pieces of surgical steel that then are rolled into tubes. This design promotes injection comfort in a 4-mm size.1

Insulin Syringes

Choose insulin syringes designed for comfortable injections, in line with the latest recommendations on insulin delivery


Just as effective as insulin syringes with longer needles, our 6-mm insulin syringes, like the BD insulin syringe with the BD Ultra-Fine 6mm needle, reduce anxiousness, and they are less likely to cause painful injections into the muscle.2,3 Utilizing thin wall technology, they feature a thinner wall that reduces the required plunger force and that helps large insulin doses flow easily.4
