Insulin injection is part of a class of medications known as hormones and is used in controlling blood sugar in people who have type 2 diabetes, a condition where blood glucose level is too high due to no production of insulin in the body. This is also used as a second choice whenever type 2 diabetes cannot be controlled with oral medications only.
The main functions of insulin injection are to take the place of insulin normally produced by the body, move sugar from the blood throughout the other body tissues where it is usually used as energy, and prevent the liver from making more sugar.
Insulin injection usually comes as a liquid solution and a suspension which is injected under the skin several times a day depending on the doctor’s prescription. Oftentimes, more than one type of insulin needed. It is important to consult a doctor before using insulin injections so that you will know which type(s) of insulin to use, correct dosage of insulin, and the right frequency. You should also let your doctor teach you how to administer the injection properly for maximum absorption of the medication.
