Buzzy® Helps for Diabetes

Type I Diabetes



For injections, Buzzy® needs to be “between the brain and the pain”.
In the arms, the nerves run straight down. For pump insertion on an arm, as in this picture, Buzzy® is left directly on the site 60 seconds. Move Buzzy® up toward the armpit and leave in place while accessing.

Arthritis 2

For stomach injections, the nerves run sideways coming around from the back towards the belly button. Again, leave the Buzzy® 30 – 60 seconds (the skin is thinner here, so the cold may get TOO cold), then slide 2cm lateral out to the side and do the injection where the Buzzy® used to be.

For fingersticks, either place Buzzy® at the base of the finger for pricks on the pad, or as close as possible on the side (where there are fewer nerves). Video HERE

“I want to give you some feedback on your wonderful product. Our daughter is 8 years old and has had type 1 diabetes since age 3. She has lived through about 6 shots per day for the past 5 years. That’s over 10,000 shots so far!!!! Needless to say we are quite familiar with needles at our house. Yet she “hates” Lantus shots because the medicine really stings from its acidity and she has never let us give her an injection in her stomach because she was too afraid. Welcome Buzzy! Last night was the first time we tried it for Lantus and she kissed Buzzy® after her shot and said “God bless you”. Today she let us give her injection in her stomach for the first time and she said it didn’t hurt!”

“After months of searching for a way of making daily injections less stressful and painful for our young daughter with type 1 diabetes we eventually found the answer with Buzzy. Amelia uses Buzzy® every day and wont Bee without it. The difference it makes is amazing.” – Beccy, mother of Amelia.

“Carlie is type 1 diabetic, she was diagnosed when she was 18 months old. She is currently having 5 injections per day. She is due to have the pump fitted shortly which will certainly be better for her but she will have to have the canula changed every 3 days so Buzzy® will certainly help. She is so pleased with Buzzy® she asked to give you a big thank you. Our daughter also asked us to thank you for making Carlie so happy. Please keep up the good work.”

” We are very happy that Buzzy® is here. Kids that endure daily shots will appreciate Buzzy® b/c it is a. cute and b. someone who is there to help them. Thanks for helping ease pain. I hope every kid with diabetes gets one. We will take it with us to our next endo appt and show the doctors and take Buzzy® to the dreaded blood draws.” Sincerely, Dr. Jennifer M.

For adults on the cusp of needing to switch from oral medications to injections, Buzzy® can help the transition.

” Buzzy® is a lifesaver!!! I am a diabetic and on meds to which I am maxed out on them. I have been prescribed Victoza which is an injectible but due to a really bad needle phobia I cannot take it.I cannot take insulin either because it’s also an injectible. My sugars were extremely high and no where to go with controlling it.Thanks to the Buzzy, I have been able to use the Victoza,keep my sugars down,and have lost a good amount of weight from the Victoza (from 167 to 151 in one week) and I feel great and my doctor is happy. I highly recommend this to anyone who has a needle phobia!!!I have told everyone I know about it and have explained my situation to them to tell them how much the Buzzy® has been a Godsend to me. I was skeptical at first but I decided to give it a try and $40.00 seemed like a small price to pay for something that could potentially help. I was at my wits end and even knowing I absolutely needed to be on the Victoza I just could not force myself to do it again on my own. I have done it a few times but had a bad experience—-very uncomfortable and had to stop the Victoza once. When my doctor heard I wanted to get back on it again (after using the Buzzy® which she didn’t know about) she told a lot of other doctors at the clinic that by knowing me she thought there was no way I was going to stick with it. She told me herself the story about saying that to everyone on the last visit. I explained to her about the Buzzy® and how it’s helped me to be able to use the Victoza and she was ecstatic. I gave her the website and she is going to check it out and recommend it as well. I had also gotten close to the diabetes educator who had tried to help me and be supportive and she was disappointed but understood my fear and why I couldn’t. When she called me back and I told her about the Victoza and the Buzzy® she had more excitement in her voice than I did.She is also going to check out the website and recommend it to everyone (like me) that has a needle phobia.Your product has helped me not only tremendously but has helped turn my life around.Not only did I lose weight from the Victoza but my A1C went from an 8.0 (terrible) to a 7.2 and my doctor wanted me 7.0 or under so I am so close and she is over the moon that I was able to accomplish what I did. I would have never been able to do it on my own without the Buzzy! Thank you for inventing such an ingenious product! - Janet M.”
