Diabetes Care: Insulin Management Techniques

 There are various types of insulin, including rapid-acting, short-acting, intermediate-acting, and long-acting, each with different onset and duration of action. Basal-Bolus Regimen  technique involves using both basal (long-acting) and bolus (rapid-acting) insulin to mimic the body's natural insulin release pattern, providing continuous background insulin and mealtime coverage. Insulin pens are convenient and portable devices for administering insulin. They allow for precise dosage adjustments and discreet insulin delivery. Insulin pumps deliver a continuous infusion of rapid-acting insulin, offering flexibility in insulin dosing and mealtime boluses, particularly beneficial for type 1 diabetes management. Patients on insulin learn to estimate and match their insulin dose to the amount of carbohydrates consumed in meals and snacks, improving glycemic control.Rotating injection sites (abdomen, thighs, buttocks, arms) helps prevent lipohypertrophy and ensures optimal insulin absorption. Individualized glycemic targets are set based on age, diabetes type, and overall health, with the aim of achieving optimal blood glucose control while minimizing hypoglycemia.
