The Mallya insulin pen cap has just arrived in South Africa – and we have one to give away!

I was recently lucky enough to try out a Mallya insulin pen cap, and I loved it. This nifty little device clips on to the top of your disposable insulin pen, and immediately turns your pen into a smart device. Using Bluetooth, it captures the dose, data and time of your injections and sends that information to your phone. Download the free Mallya app on the Apple Store or Google Play Store and you have a digital diary of all your insulin doses.

An unexpected benefit of using the Mallya was that I found I was a lot more careful with my insulin doses. It made me more aware of how long I need to inject for, and as a result I had far fewer leaky injections. Win-win!

Win a Mallya insulin pen cap!
