FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
Q) How to inject Insulin safely?
A) Insulin is injected in the adipose tissues (fat layer). Areas to be chosen can be lower belly region, thighs, fatty portion of the arms and buttocks (barring the lower region). The skin is pinched, and syringe is injected at a 45-degree angle in a smooth way right up to the skin. Let loose the skin and do not inject in a bruised or already scarred area. Please allow a nurse or a doctor to demonstrate to you all the above points to inject insulin initially. Do not try it on your own for the first time without doctor/nurse supervision.
Q) Why is my doctor insisting on insulin?
A) Sometimes despite all efforts such as exercises, diet modifications and oral anti-diabetes medications the blood glucose levels remain uncontrolled. This is especially true for people having Type 1 diabetes or long-term type 2 diabetes. During this condition it is very important to lower blood glucose levels as it can pose a great risk to other organs such as kidney, liver and heart. Hence the doctor insists on insulin injections so that you can get a good control over diabetes and live a long-healthy life.
Q) Will I have to take Insulin forever?
A) For type 1 diabetes insulin is the only line of treatment for controlling blood glucose levels. However, In the case of type 2 diabetes depending upon your health condition, medicinal compliance and blood glucose levels there may be a remote possibility of insulin reversal. However, never stop taking insulin on your own without discussing with your doctor.
Q) What is Insulin resistance?
A) Insulin resistance is the inability of your body to effectively use the hormone insulin to convert glucose into energy. Insulin resistance is specially seen in people with a family history of diabetes or obesity. Stress and lack of physical activity also plays a vital role in insulin resistance. Changing of lifestyle, diet, cardio exercises and workouts can help you overcome insulin resistance.
