About "Insulin Therapy"

Insulin is used in the treatment of type 1 diabetes and sometimes in type 2 diabetes patients. Insulin therapy helps diabetic patients maintain the blood sugar level within the normal range. Insulin is administered using a syringe, pen, or a pump in the fat under the skin.The types of Insulin available are:

 

  1. Rapid-acting – Starts working in 5 to 15 minutes and lasts for 3 to 4 hours.
  2. Short-acting – Starts working in 30 to 45 minutes and lasts for 6 to 8 hours.
  3. Intermediate-acting – Starts working in 2 hours and lasts for 16 to 24 hours.
  4. Long-acting – Starts working in 2 hours and lasts for 14 to 24 hours.
Your doctor will decide the type of Insulin that will be most beneficial for you, and it depends on the type of diabetes you have, how much your blood sugar fluctuates in a day, and your lifestyle.
