Insulin and Other Injections

Diabetes occurs when your body either doesn't produce any or enough insulin or when a person's cells ignore insulin. Insulin treatment replaces your body's own insulin, restoring the blood sugar levels necessary for the body to be able to use glucose for energy. Here you can learn about the different types of insulin available, insulin side effects, how insulin can help you, and get real insulin reviews from other type 1 and type 2 diabetics.
