Diabetes mellitus, or high blood sugar, is often referred to as a "silent killer."  It can ravage your body for years without showing any outward signs. The most common symptoms are: excess urination, thirst and hunger; also problems with fatigue, weight, healing, and blurred vision. It destroys the kidneys, numbs the nerves in the lower legs, clouds the vision and damages the heart and all the while one could feel fine. The complications of diabetes often result in major disability and premature death but they may be delayed or prevented. 

A deficiency of insulin, a hormone produced by the pancreas is the cause. When the body doesn't produce insulin, or doesn't use it correctly, it can't make use of its main fuel -- sugar. Untreated, diabetes can lead to blindness, vascular disease, kidney disease, neuropathy, and other problems.

For those who must live with diabetes, life often means a total readjustment of their lifestyle.  It becomes necessary to carefully monitor one's diet and blood sugar, may require injections of insulin and increased exercise

For the millions of people throughout the world who live with diabetes and many other medical conditions, daily injections with needles are a fact of life. Since the original Medi-Jector® was sold in 1979, Medi-Ject has helped improve the quality of life for thousands of individuals and their families. They continue to make tremendous progress in developing more advanced and easier to use Needle-Free injection systems.
