PenHold

Insulin pens were named because of the way you are supposed to hold them. To best deliver the shot, you grab the pen device with your dominant hand (for most people that’s the right hand). Then place your thumb over the button end. In this way, the insulin pen is handled in the same manner you would click a retractable pen to expose the writing tip.
