Insulin therapy is frequently used as a critical part of treating diabetes. Recognizing the important function insulin plays in controlling your blood sugar and preventing diabetic complications.

About Our Senior Living Glucose and Insulin Management
Insulin is not available in tablet form because the digestive system would break it down before it could operate. However, there are various insulin administration options. Our experienced team can assist you in determining which option best suits your lifestyle and treatment requirements.
Here are some options:
- Pens or Shots
Insulin can be injected into the fat immediately beneath your skin using a syringe and needle or a pen-like device containing insulin and a needle. The frequency is determined by the kind of diabetes you have, your blood sugar levels, and how frequently you eat. It might happen several times every day.
- Insulin Delivery System
An insulin pump delivers small, consistent doses of fast-acting insulin through a narrow tube implanted beneath your skin. These dosages are given several times during the day. There are various types of insulin pumps available.
Benefits of Having Glucose and Insulin Management in Your Retirement Community
Insulin treatment is critical in replenishing the insulin your body does not make if you have type 1 diabetes. If alternative therapies have failed to keep blood glucose levels within the recommended range in persons with type 2 diabetes or gestational diabetes, insulin therapy may be required. Insulin treatment aids in the prevention of diabetic complications by maintaining your blood sugar within your goal range.
