Ouch! Shots are painful! Especially for little kids, most of whom are scared of shots to begin with. In this episode I get to speak with Rebecca who is mom to a 6 year-old girl named Ava. Ava wears a pretty cool gadget called the Medtronic i-Port Advance which takes the pain out of multiple daily injections, giving Ava more flexibility and confidence when it comes to her diabetes management. The i-Port is inserted right on the skin with a small cannula in the subcutaneous tissue and allows users to only have to endure one, small poke once every three days. The insulin gets injected in the port each time and not the skin. Listen in to find out even MORE benefits of the Medtronic i-Port Advance! Enjoy the show!
