Health Tip: Creating an Insulin Routine

Make it personal

(HealthDay News) -- If you take insulin, you'll need to create a comfortable routine to keep blood glucose under control.

The American Diabetes Association explains:

  • Type 1 diabetes typically needs at least two daily injections of two different types of insulin.
  • Type 2 diabetics may need just one daily shot of insulin.
  • Monitor closely how your blood glucose responds to different activities, such as exercise and eating.
  • Find the insulin delivery method that's best for you, whether it's a pen, pump or syringe. Don't forget to change the injection site periodically.
  • Talk to your doctor if you're not sure that your insulin dose is appropriate.
