Using Insulin: A Day in the Life

Ever wondered what it’s like using insulin — or wanted to let someone else know what it feels like to be in your shoes? Then you’ll want to see a new, interactive infographic from Abbott called “A Day in the Life of an Insulin-Using Patient.”

This educational tool allows you to choose a character and walk through a day in the life of someone using insulin, highlighting the various factors he must consider to keep himself healthy — when to monitor, what to eat, when to take insulin, and more. The infographic also presents diabetes facts, such as what percentage of the total daily insulin dose is used to cover carbohydrate, what factors affect insulin dosing, and what steps are recommended for maintaining healthful blood glucose levels.
