Della Matheson, a registered nurse and research coordinator at the Diabetes Research Institute, University of Miami, said she used to stick her finger eight to 10 times a day. With her continuous sensor - she uses DexCom - she can get a reading every five minutes.
"It gives me more information so I can anticipate where I'm headed and what I'm going to do behaviorally," she said.
Matheson said the pens are more convenient. "You can carry them in your purse or your pocket, it makes it easier to take your insulin on the go," she said.

"Every meal is a mathematical formula," said Della Matheson, another conference speaker.
Matheson, a trial coordinator for the University of Miami Clinical Center for Type 1 diabetes TrialNet, will give an update on diabetes research at the conference.
"The process that leads to Type 1 diabetes we know begins long before the person actually gets the disease," Matheson said.
Matheson emphasizes that Type 1 diabetes is an autoimmune disease, making the research on stem cell replacement so critical. When she first began researching ways to eradicate Type 1 diabetes, she thought her team would be able to identify the key risk factors and correct them, preventing the disease.
But the process became more daunting than she realized.
"For every little onion skin you peel back with answering one question, it leads to another. The immune system is extremely complex," Matheson said. "It's important for people to understand the research is going on, how collaborative it is, how many people are working on it, and really how far we've come."
One recent advancement, Matheson explained, came when scientists discovered the liver was not the best site to implant beta cells, the cells that produce insulin. Instead, they began implanting them in the fatty layer of the patients' abdomen, which is less potentially dangerous.
Matheson said having Type 1 diabetes makes her sensitive to how solutions and cures are reported in the media. When she was diagnosed nearly 35 years ago, doctors told her there would be a cure in 10 years.
"We're launching into a new era of looking at the issue in a more complex way to stop the autoimmune process," Matheson said.
