How to adjust the injection method and dosage of insulin, diabetic patients must know!
Posted by Admin | 14 Sep
Nowadays, many diabetic patients who need to inject insulin, the most worrying part is not knowing how to adjust the injection method and not knowing their own adaptive dose. Due to the professionalism of insulin injection, once the wrong operation is likely to cause danger. So in what way should a diabetic self-inject insulin? Next, Yuhuan New Times Machinery Equipment Co., Ltd. will talk about how to adjust the injection method and dosage of insulin.
With the increasing number of diabetic patients, insulin treatment is also the most common method. As diabetic patients or their family members, it is an essential skill to correctly master the insulin injection method and dosage. Although the issue of insulin dose adjustment is more professional and should be guided by professional physicians, in fact, after a long time of insulin injection, many diabetic patients are willing to try to adjust the dose by themselves, which is both flexible and convenient. However, diabetics adjust their insulin doses without authorization, which may lead to large fluctuations in blood sugar, and even frequent hypoglycemia. In view of this situation, it is necessary to master some basic insulin dose adjustment methods. So how to adjust the injection method and measurement of insulin?
The correct way to inject insulin First, before injecting insulin, it is necessary to have a detailed understanding of the concentration and specifications of the injection, so as to avoid the situation of injecting too much or too little without understanding the specifications, resulting in hyperglycemia or hypoglycemia of patients. Second, before injection For disinfection, the injector should wash his hands first, and then insert the syringe into the insulin vial for extraction. Third, select the correct injection area, sterilize the injection area with a sterile cotton ball, then lift the skin with the thumb, index finger and middle finger, and select the injection angle for injection according to the length of the needle.
Correct dosage of insulin In fact, for diabetic patients, when diabetic patients are treated with insulin, there is no fixed standard for each dose, and they need to be adjusted at any time according to the patient's diet and condition. For insulin dose adjustment, individualized treatment goals should be established first, and the following factors usually need to be considered: the patient's fasting, postprandial blood glucose level, disease duration, the patient's current medication, the patient's lifestyle and overall health, and the patient's complications. Wait. And over time, a patient's insulin needs may change, requiring dose adjustments at any time.
Adjusting the injection method can actually "reduce" the dosage of insulin, subverting our traditional perception! In contrast to adjusting the insulin dose, adjusting the injection method is sometimes necessary. Compared with the traditional injection method with a needle, adjusting the injection method of insulin can be optimized by choosing a new type of syringe. For example, the use of Quick Shure needle-free syringes, which have no needles, can significantly reduce the pain of injections and improve patient satisfaction with treatment. Avoid the troubles of many "sugar friends" due to fear of injections. It also avoids or reduces the occurrence of subcutaneous fat hyperplasia caused by the repeated use of needles, solves the problem of induration, and reduces the risk of diabetic complications.
At the same time, studies have also confirmed that the use of needle-free syringes can effectively improve blood sugar while reducing the dosage of insulin compared with traditional needle-based injections. Improvements in the pharmacokinetics (PK) and pharmacodynamics (PD) of insulin are related. Thus, diabetic patients can better absorb and obtain better glycosylated blood glucose protein level. In addition, when the needle-free syringe was used to inject premixed insulin, postprandial blood glucose levels were better reduced, positively impacting drug efficacy.
Okay, that's all we have to talk about about how insulin is adjusted for injection methods and doses. You must have learned a new way to inject insulin through the above article, which is to use the "Quick Shure Needleless Syringe". In addition, it is recommended to read the instruction manual carefully before using this product, and use it under the guidance of a doctor, so as to achieve the best use effect.
