From Johannesburg, South Africa:

My son is two and has just been diagnosed with diabetes. He has been prescribed 1/2 doses of Humalog but we cannot get syringes with 1/2 unit measures in South Africa so it is a bit of guess work. Can you tell me if there is a company where we can order syringes from in the USA?


Syringes with half-unit markings are available at Wal-Mart with their ReliOn products.
