What You Need to Know About Diabetes Injection Pen Disposal
Knowing how to dispose of needles and delivery devices (also referred to as “sharps”), including diabetes injection pens, is an important part of managing your diabetes.
If not disposed of correctly, used sharps can injure people, such as garbage and sewage workers, janitors, housekeepers and family members, and put them at risk for infection and other serious health conditions like Hepatitis and Human Immunodeficiency Virus (HIV).
