Insulin and insulin regimen. is it necessary that a type two diabetic should learn all about insulin?what percentage of type 2 will end up in insulin therapy.?
Regardless of type 1dm or type 2 dm 26 percent of diabetics have to take insulin.
But only 14 percent has to take both oral medicine and insulin together.
Does this mean type 2 diabetic need not study about insulin? American government statistics cdc. diabetes.niddk.nih.gov/dm/p...
If you visit this page scroll down to about the middle of the page to view the pie chart-
Which is a circular area picture giving us an easy picture of the size of percentages.
In my opinion it is better to study about insulin and insulin regimen.whether you are t1 ort2
We need only require to read some 15 pages[of text book page size] to get an essential general knowledge about insulin and dosing.
This will take less than ten hours studies,
if we can find out a proper website.
Leave alone the chance that we may, in old age, require insulin,
is there any present advantage in learning about insulin?.
I am of opinion that we can get a fuller understanding of ,how the tablets work and glycemic control etc , by the ten hour studies.
Because the tablet generated insulin also has the same fate inside the body.
1]if injected insulin is less needed during mid day,
then the Sulfonylurea
too will also be less needed.
2]carbohydrate counting [ at least limiting carbs ]is must for everyone including a healthy man, any diabetic
3]when we talk about basal insulin we have to learn basal energy needs, resting energy needs etc . all these things are wanted for all people even non diabetics.
Sum total, above fifty percent of knowledge we collect from learning insulin is useful for type 2 diabetics as well. only the descriptions of various insulins and injection advices may not be of immediate use by type 2 diabetics. but it will be useful if you are a charity minded person –helping others.
[ that 14 percent I said can mislead as the insulin takers cluster towards old age.
is it that virtually all above 80 will require insulin?can anyone answer.?
kindly bear with me .we are discussing and the above sentence is my understanding only , though the percentages given are from the cdc –American national statistics.
Always please point out errors in my presentations.[not of course unsubstantiated criticisms]
So ,which is a good web site from which one can get an easy
understanding of insulin .?
Web pages can mislead and confuse especially in studying insulin.
this confusion comes because some of the words linger historically and some are used in European context. Any one who finds problem can message me as well. .
Kindly read through the California university pages.[one of the top ten universities of the world]
once this page is located go to other articles by
moving forward and backwards from this page , to other pages we can have a full understanding .[ see the list on the left side and bpttom.
