Diabetes Treatment and Insulin Problems


There are many things which can affect how the insulin is absorbed from the injection site into the bloodstream. It includes:

  • Mode of administration
  • Selecting the 'right' dose and timing
  • Selecting a suitable insulin preparation (typically on 'speed of onset and duration of action' grounds)
  • Adjusting dosage and timing to fit food intake timing, amounts, and types
  • Adjusting dosage and timing in accordance with exercise undertaken
  • Adjusting dosage, type and timing according to other conditions like stress, illness etc
  • The dosage is non-physiological in that a subcutaneous bolus dose of insulin alone is administered instead of combination of insulin
  • It is dangerous in case of mistake (Hypoglycemia or Hyperglycemia)
  • Once open insulin may be preserved for 30 days at temperature less than 86 °F.
