There are intensive discussions about the impact the choice of material for insulin application has on insulin pharmacokinetics” Heinemann (2016).
An insulin infusion set (IIS) is a key component of insulin pumps. In daily practice issues with the IIS appear to be as relevant for a successful insulin therapy as the pumps themselves.

The insulin is applied to the subcutaneous tissue via a Teflon® (Dupont, Wilmington, DE) or steel cannula. There are intensive discussions about the impact the choice of material for insulin application has on insulin pharmacokinetics. In this review, this factor and others that are known to have an impact on the successful usage of IIS are discussed.
