SymlinPen 120 Description

If you are an adult who is having difficulties managing your type 1 or 2 diabetes with your meal-time insulin, talk to your doctor about SymlinPen 120. SymlinPen 120 (or 60) contains Pramlintide Acetate, a newer class of diabetes medicine resembling the hormone Amylin that can be prescribed for type 1 or 2 diabetics to inject along with meal-time insulin to control the occurrence of sugar spikes after eating.

After a meal, a hormone called glucagon is released by your liver to increase glucose levels in your blood to help with digestion. Glucagon usually works together with insulin, but if you are not producing insulin or your body is not using the insulin your body makes, then the glucose is not absorbed into cells but remains in your bloodstream and your blood glucose rises too much.

By administering SymlinPen 120 at the same time as your meal-time insulin, but not at the same site, the actions of glucagon are inhibited so Pramlintide Acetate can help stop your liver from releasing glucose into your blood. Your rate of digestion will also be slowed down by SymlinPen 120 so your meal will stay longer in your stomach which has two benefits. You will feel full longer which could lead to weight loss and the release of sugar into your blood is slowed down.

Conditions Treated by SymlinPen 120

The number of people with diabetes has almost quadrupled from 1980 to 2014, from 108 million to 422 million! People are reminded to eat healthier, be more active, quit smoking, and lose weight, and yet the numbers are climbing. Diabetes can cause damage to your heart, kidneys, blood vessels, nerves, and your eyes. If you can keep your blood sugar under control with diet, exercise, and medication, you can greatly reduce your risk of a heart attack, stroke, kidney disease, and many other serious health conditions.

Before You Administer SymlinPen 120

Ask your doctor about any risks of using SymlinPen 120 if you are pregnant, may become pregnant, or are breast feeding. Explain other medical conditions or allergies you have to your doctor and list any current OTC or Rx drugs you take or use, including herbal remedies and dietary or vitamin supplements to determine if SymlinPen 120 is right for you.

Warnings for SymlinPen 120

Your pharmacist can supply you with a proper ‘sharps’ container for disposing of any needles after injecting SymlinPen 120. Do not use SymlinPen 120 if: you are skipping a meal or having a light snack that consists of less than 250 calories or 30 grams of carbs; are ill and cannot eat; or you need to fast prior to a surgical procedure or medical test. Be aware of the symptoms of low blood sugar, such as dizziness, hunger, or shaking. You can obtain an Rx for a glucagon emergency kit in case this occurs.
