Diabetes Insight and Needle-Free Drug Delivery

Diabetes is divided into two categories

1. Type 1 diabetes mellitus (T1DM), also known as insulin-dependent diabetes mellitus (IDDM) or juvenile diabetes mellitus, is prone to diabetic ketoacidosis (DKA). It is also called youth-onset diabetes because it often occurs before the age of 35, accounting for less than 10% of diabetes.

2. Type 2 diabetes (T2DM), also known as adult-onset diabetes, mostly occurs after the age of 35 to 40, accounting for more than 90% of diabetic patients. The ability of type 2 diabetes patients to produce insulin is not completely lost. Some patients even produce too much insulin in their body, but the effect of insulin is poor. Therefore, the insulin in the patient’s body is a relative deficiency, which can be stimulated by some oral drugs in the body, secretion of insulin. However, some patients still need to use insulin therapy in the later stage.

At the present, the prevalence of diabetes among Chinese adults is 10.9%, and only 25% of diabetic patients meet the hemoglobin standard.

In addition to oral hypoglycemic drugs and insulin injections, diabetes self-monitoring and healthy lifestyle are also important measures to guide blood sugar targets:

1. Diabetes education and psychotherapy: The main purpose is to let patients have a correct understanding of diabetes and how to treat and deal with diabetes.

2. Diet therapy: For all diabetic patients, reasonable dietary control is the most basic and important treatment method.

3. Exercise therapy: Physical exercise is one of the basic treatment methods for diabetes. Diabetic patients can significantly improve their diabetes condition and maintain a normal weight through appropriate exercise.

4. Drug treatment: When the effect of diet and exercise treatment is unsatisfactory, oral antidiabetic drugs and insulin should be used in a timely manner under the guidance of a doctor.

5. Diabetes monitoring: fasting blood sugar, postprandial blood sugar and glycosylated hemoglobin should be monitored regularly. Attention should also be paid to monitoring of chronic complications


TECHiJET needle-free injector is also known as needle-free administration. At present, needle-free injection has been included in (China Geriatric Diabetes Diagnosis and Treatment Guidelines 2021 Edition) and published simultaneously in January 2021 by (Chinese Journal of Diabetes) and (Chinese Journal of Geriatrics). It is pointed out in the guidelines that needle-free injection technology is one of the injection methods recommended by the guidelines, which can effectively relieve patients’ fear of traditional needles and reduce pain during injection, thereby greatly improving patient compliance and improving blood sugar control. It can also reduce the adverse reactions of needle injection, such as subcutaneous nodules, fat hyperplasia or atrophy, and can reduce the injection dose.
