Diabetes and Daily Insulin Use

For many individuals with diabetes, daily insulin use is a crucial component of their treatment plan, helping to regulate blood glucose levels and prevent complications. Insulin is a hormone that enables the body's cells to absorb and use glucose from the bloodstream, thereby lowering elevated blood sugar levels. People with type 1 diabetes typically require daily insulin injections or insulin pump therapy to compensate for their body's inability to produce insulin. In type 2 diabetes, insulin may also be prescribed when oral medications and lifestyle modifications alone are insufficient to control blood sugar levels. Managing daily insulin doses requires careful monitoring of blood glucose levels throughout the day to make adjustments as needed.
