Insulin Therapy & Role Of Insulin

Type 1 diabetes patients need to take insulin to control their blood sugar levels. The goal of inject insulin is to keep your blood sugar level in a normal range as much as possible. Keeping blood glucose in check helps you stay healthy. Insulin can’t be taken by mouth. It is usually taken by injection  or by using an insulin pen or an insulin pump devices

 Insulin can not be taken by mouth. You must inject it with a syringe, insulin pen, or insulin pump.Ask to Your doctor or diabetes educator to show you how to give yourself the injection. You can inject the insulin under the skin in many different parts of your body like:

  • Upper arms
  • Abdomen
  • Buttocks
  • Thighs

You Should not inject insulin within two inches of your belly button because your body dose not absorb it as well. You should vary the location of injections to prevent the thickening of your skin from constant insulin exposure.
