  Purpose

The purpose of this study is to determine whether injecting Symlin and insulin through a multiple injection port is safe and effective. This will be measured by HbA1c values taken at the beginning of the study and at the final visit.

The secondary objective of the study is to measure patient satisfaction toward using the multiple injection port.

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • The primary outcome will be measured by HbA1c values taken at baseline and the final visit. [ Time Frame: 3 months ]

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • The secondary outcome will measure patient satisfaction, opinions and attitudes toward using the multiple injection port for insulin and Symlin administration compared to standard Symlin injections (measured through using questionnaires). [ Time Frame: 3 months ]
