I found color stickers in the packaging. What are they for?
If you have two or more pens, you need two or more CLIPSULINs. The color stickers are very useful in this case because you can stick them to the side of the CLIPSULIN™ to remember and identify which CLIPSULIN™ clips on which pen. Use the stickers if your have two or more pens, and make sure to put the same CLIPSULIN™ on the same pen when you change your pen. It is not possible to use the same CLIPSULIN™ on two different models of pens. Each CLIPSULIN™ is paired with one pen brand and model in the App. Do not hesitate to use the stickers on your CLIPSULINs to match the color of the pen and the color of the CLIPSULIN™ sticker.
How do I record an injection with CLIPSULIN™?
- Follow your insulin pen instructions for Priming your pen.
- After you have finished your priming procedure, then turn on the CLIPSULIN™ Screen by pressing the big blue power button in the center.
- Then use dial your dose as usual by turning the dose selector of your pen carefully up to the insulin injection dose you decide to inject and following your physician prescription.
- Once you have dialed your insulin dose, it is IMPORTANT that you make sure that the number on the CLIPSULIN™ screen is the same number as the selected dose on the insulin pen. eg: 5 units on the pen windows = 5 on the CLIPSULIN™ screen.
- Once you have confirmed that the number on the CLIPSULIN™ screen is the same as the selected dose on the insulin pen, press the big blue center button again to confirm the dose and record it in the memory of the CLIPSULIN™ and your digital logbook.

- Now just use your pen as you usually do according to your healthcare professional advice. After the dose and time are recorded, there is no change to your usual injection procedure.
If I need to, how do I adjust the injection dosage on CLIPSULIN™?
- You can sometimes have to adjust the dose on the screen if it’s different than the dose on the pen. For example when you overdial on your pen, and then come back to a lower dose, the numbers may not match because this will increase the number on the CLIPSULIN™ screen. So in that case you just have to adjust it.
- To adjust, you can use the “plus” and “minus” small blue buttons to manually adjust the value on the CLIPSULIN™ screen, so your pen and CLIPSULIN™ show the exact same number.
- One press on + adds one unit.
