Many years ago, 25 unit syringes with 1/2 unit markings were available, which helped make it easy to small doses of insulin for kids, adults, and pets with diabetes. Those syringes are no longer manufactured.
We asked our readers if they would use syringes with 1/2 unit markings if they were available. Over half (54%) said they would for all of their injections, and another 17% said they would for some of their injections. In all, 7 out of 10 respondents would use 25 or 30 unit syringes with 1/2 unit markings if they were available.
