You know that each 10 mL insulin vial contains 1000 units of insulin (100 units/mL x 10 mL/vial = 1000 units/vial), so you dispense one vial of Lantus for a one-month supply.
Similarly, you may ask, how much insulin is needed to lower blood sugar?
Generally, to correct a high blood sugar, one unit of insulin is needed to drop the blood glucose by 50 mg/dl. This drop in blood sugar can range from 30-100 mg/dl or more, depending on individual insulin sensitivities, and other circumstances.
What is a sliding fee scale for therapy?
Sliding scale fees are variable prices for products, services, or taxes based on a customer's ability to pay. Such fees are thereby reduced for those who have lower incomes, or alternatively, less money to spare after their personal expenses, regardless of income.
Can I take my insulin after a meal?
Mealtime insulins are fast-acting insulins that are taken immediately before or after meals. Humalog should be taken within 15 minutes before eating or right after eating a meal. People who take Humalog will usually continue to take longer-acting insulin to help manage blood sugar levels at night and between meals.
