Insulin is a hormone that is normally delivered in the body by the pancreas. It helps change over the glucose (sugar) in your circulatory system into vitality.

5 Insulin Mistakes You Need to Avoid - Part 1
 
03:20
1. Wrong dose, wrong insulin There are four basic types of insulin: Rapid and short-acting insulins are injected before a meal to cover the rise in blood sugar from the food you're about to eat; intermediate and long-acting insulins control blood sugar for up to 24 hours, covering periods of time when shorter-acting types have stopped working. People with type 1 diabetes often take a combination of shorter and longer-acting insulins and that's where mix-ups can happen. The fix: If this happens to you, eat enough carbohydrates to cover the extra insulin, keep monitoring your blood sugar, watch for signs of hypoglycemia (such as shaking, sweating or a headache) and call your doctor right away if you have any concerns. To prevent it from happening again, make sure you know which insulin is which and what the right dose is. 2. Exercising when insulin's peaking Hitting the gym or your local walking trail at the same time a dose of insulin is reaching peak effectiveness in your body could lead to low blood sugar. Exercise uses up blood sugar as well as glucose stored in the liver; as insulin "pulls" more blood sugar into cells, levels could drop dangerously. The fix: Check your blood sugar before, during and after exercise; if it's low, have a snack that you know will raise it. Carry glucose tablets or a carbohydrate-rich snack with you in case your blood sugar drops while you're working out. Skip hot tubs, saunas and steam rooms afterwards; by keeping your heart rate up, these can decrease blood sugar levels even further. If problems persist, talk with your healthcare professional and work with them to create a plan in order to adjust your doses surrounding activity. 3. Sharing an insulin pen Insulin pens are a convenient way to get a just-right dose without filling and injecting yourself with a conventional syringe. They can be used multiple times, with a new needle each time. But a fresh needle doesn't mean sharing's OK. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention warns that blood and skin cells can be sucked into the insulin cartridge during a shot. Sharing a pen is the same as sharing the same syringe and could expose you to infectious diseases. The fix: If you and other people in your household use insulin, make sure everyone has their own pen. 5 Insulin Mistakes You Need to Avoid - Part 2 video: https://youtu.be/2VCWfwTr9Xc

No PDM = Lantus Injections
 
08:45
Since I don't have my insulin pump (it died on Saturday) I now have to use injections and two different types of insulin. The Lantus is supposed to mimic the way the pancreas releases small amounts of insulin through out the day to keep BG levels in the normal range. The different between a working pancreas and Lantus is that Lantus makes you feel like you're on fire after injecting.

Rotating Insulin Injection Sites Is Very Important
 
02:10
Same Time, Same General Location Insulin is absorbed at different speeds depending on where you inject, so it's best to consistently use the same part of the body for each of your daily injections. For example, do not inject your lunch bolus dose in the abdomen on Monday and in the thigh on Tuesday. If you have picked the thigh for your evening injection, then continue to use the thigh for all of your evening injections.According to Eli Lilly, the leading manufacturer of insulin, most insulin enters the blood: Fastest from the abdomen (stomach) A little slower from the arms Even slower from the legs Slowest from the buttocksRotate Within an Injection Site To avoid developing hard lumps and fat deposits, it is important to inject in different spots within a general part of the body. Change sides within an area. For example, if you inject your evening insulin in the thigh, try using the right thigh one evening, and the left thigh the next evening. You might find it useful to picture the face of a clock on your abdomen. That helps you to keep each of your injections at least one finger’s width from the last injection. Let’s say that you inject four times a day, and all of the injections are in your abdomen. Look down at your abdomen and picture “Noon” below your belly button. Place your first injection at Noon, your second injection at 1 o’clock, the third injection at 2 o’clock, and the fourth injection at 3 o’clock. You will not come back to the “Noon” spot again until day 4, which gives that spot a chance to rest.

Lantus SoloStar ⚠️Warning⚠️Dont use SoloStar Pen for injection untill you watch this
 
01:50
Discover dr kotb best recommendation as Insulin Cooler for Lantus SoloStar HERE =============https://amzn.to/2LydI90 Lantus Usage Follow the instructions given by your doctor about the type or types of insulin you are using. Do not make any changes with your insulin unless you have talked to your doctor. Your insulin needs may change because of illness, stress, other medicines, or changes in diet or activity level. Talk to your doctor about how to adjust your insulin dose. You may take Lantus at any time during the day but you must take it at the same time every day. Only use Lantus that is clear and colorless. If your Lantus is cloudy or slightly colored, return it to your pharmacy for a replacement. Follow your doctor's instructions for testing your blood sugar. Inject Lantus under your skin (subcutaneously) in your upper arm, abdomen (stomach area), or thigh (upper leg). Never inject it into a vein or muscle. Change (rotate) injection sites within the same body area. Lantus 10 mL vial (U-100): The syringe must be new and must not contain any other medicine. Do not mix Lantus with any other type of insulin. Follow these steps to draw insulin into syringe: 1. Wash your hands with soap and water or with alcohol. 2. Check the insulin to make sure it is clear and colorless. Do not use the insulin after the expiration date stamped on the label, if it is colored or cloudy, or if you see particles in the solution. 3. If you are using a new vial, remove the protective cap. Do not remove the stopper. 4. Wipe the top of the vial with an alcohol swab. You do not have to shake the vial of Lantus before use. 5. Use a new needle and a U-100 syringe every time you give an injection. Use disposable syringes and needles only once. Throw them away properly. Never share needles and syringes. 6. Draw air into the syringe equal to your insulin dose. Put the needle through the rubber top of the vial and push the plunger to inject the air into the vial. 7. Leave the syringe in the vial and turn both upside down. Hold the syringe and vial firmly in one hand. 8. Make sure the tip of the needle is in the insulin. With your free hand, pull the plunger to withdraw the correct dose into the syringe. 9. Before you take the needle out of the vial, check the syringe for air bubbles. If bubbles are in the syringe, hold the syringe straight up and tap the side of the syringe until the bubbles float to the top. Push the bubbles out with the plunger and draw insulin back in until you have the correct dose. 10. Remove the needle from the vial. Do not let the needle touch anything. You are now ready to inject. Inject Lantus under your skin. Take Lantus as prescribed by your doctor. Follow these steps to inject Lantus: Decide on an injection area - either upper arm, thigh or abdomen. Injection sites within an injection area must be different from one injection to the next. Use alcohol or soap and water to clean the injection site. The injection site should be dry before you inject. Pinch the skin. Stick the needle in the way your healthcare provider showed you. Release the skin. Slowly push in the plunger of the syringe all the way, making sure you have injected all the insulin. Leave the needle in the skin for about 10 seconds. Pull the needle straight out and gently press on the spot where you injected yourself for several seconds. Do not rub the area. Follow your healthcare providers instructions for throwing away the used needle and syringe. Do not recap the used needle. Used needle and syringe should be placed in sharps containers (such as red biohazard containers), hard plastic containers (such as detergent bottles), or metal containers (such as an empty coffee can). Such containers should be sealed and disposed of properly. Lantus SoloStar It is important to read, understand, and follow the step-by-step instructions before using SoloStar disposable insulin pen. Failure to follow the instructions may result in getting too much or too little insulin. Lantus Dosage Take Lantus exactly as prescribed by your doctor. Follow the directions on your prescription label carefully. The dose of Lantus must be individualized based on several factors including your medical conditions, other insulin doses you are receiving, other medicines you are taking, and how your body responds to Lantus. In people with type 1 diabetes, Lantus must be used along with a short-acting insulin. The recommended starting Lantus dose for people with type 2 diabetes is 10 units (U) once daily, if no other insulin is being used.

Why is My Blood Sugar So High In The Morning
 
06:56
Get my prediabetes and diabetes type 2 management guide here to control your blood sugar better https://goo.gl/z7bR6y Morning blood sugar readings can sometimes be all over the place. Depending on what you had for dinner or what snacks you had during the evening. What time you took your medicine can play a factor as well. But if you have consistently high blood glucose readings every morning, it could be one of three reasons that we are going to discuss in this video. DAWN PHENOMENON Researchers feel the most common reason for high blood glucose levels in the morning is the dawn phenomenon. The glucose is going up from sources other than digested food. Some of it is produced by the liver from stored starch and fatty acids. Livers that produce too much glucose are one of the main ways diabetes causes high blood glucose levels. Other organs also produce small amounts of glucose. This is called “gluconeogenesis” for those of you who like the technical stuff. Organs produce glucose to keep blood glucose from going too low at night or other times of not eating. From about 2 AM to 8 AM, most people’s bodies produce hormones, including cortisol, glucagon, and epinephrine. All these hormones increase insulin resistance and tell the liver to make more glucose. The idea is to get you enough glucose to get out of bed and start the day. Everyone has a dawn phenomenon. Otherwise they’d be too weak to get breakfast. But in people without diabetes, insulin levels also increase to handle the extra glucose. People with diabetes can’t increase insulin levels that much, so their early morning blood glucose levels can rise dramatically. Experts disagree on how many people have a dawn phenomenon. Estimates range from 3% to 50% of Type 2s and from 25% to 50% of Type 1s. Is dawn phenomenon a serious problem? It can be serious. According to the American Diabetes Association, “Some people with dawn phenomenon find that their glucose continues to rise until they eat in the morning. For others, levels will settle down a few hours after waking, regardless of whether or not they eat.” According to columnist Wil Dubois, the higher your A1C, the more likely you are to have a significant dawn phenomenon. It could be that spending a number of hours each morning out of control is having a significant effect on your overall control. Some people have high glucose levels in the morning because their medicines wear off overnight. This could be true of medicines like insulin, and metformin. If you are taking any long-acting medicine, consider asking your doctor about changing meds, doses, or times THE SOMOGYI EFFECT In some cases, medicine can be too strong. If your glucose goes too low in the night, you could have a rebound high in the morning. This is called the Somogyi effect. If you are waking up high and are suffering pounding headaches, or find your sheets sweat-soaked, the odds are you are having lows in your sleep…You need to visit with your doctor about taking less meds. According to Dubois, the new insulins are much less likely to cause a Somogyi reaction. But because of cost, people are going back to NPH insulin. NPH is cheaper, shorter-acting, and more likely to cause a low, leading to a rebound high in the morning. WANING INSULIN If you take insulin and have been experiencing high blood sugar in the morning, your insulin may simply be wearing off too soon. If this is the case, your doctor can adjust your dosage or change what time you are taking the insulin to prevent high glucose levels. Pinpointing the Cause for Effective Treatment If your blood sugar is fairly even when you go to bed and at 3 a.m. but is higher in the morning, you are probably experiencing dawn phenomenon. If your blood sugar is low at 3 a.m., but high in the morning, you probably suffer from the Somogyi effect. If your blood sugar is elevated at 3 a.m. and then higher still in the morning, you probably have waning insulin. Even if you’ve identified the reason behind your high morning number, never attempt to correct it on your own. Instead, talk with your doctor. Together, you can find a treatment plan that gets you back on track in the morning. How can this situation be corrected? Once you and your doctor determine how your blood sugar levels are behaving at night, he or she can advise you about the changes you need to make to better control them. -Changing the time you take the long-acting insulin in the evening so that its peak action occurs when your blood sugars start rising -Changing the type of insulin you take in the evening -Taking extra insulin overnight -Eating a lighter breakfast -Increasing your morning dose of insulin -Switching to an insulin pump, which can be programmed to release additional insulin in the morning
