  • Effectiveness
    Moderate (for Diabetes Type II insulin dependent)
  • Side effects
    None
  • Adherence
    Sometimes
  • Burden
    Very hard to take
Dosage: 100 units Daily
Advice & Tips: I am to take my shot at night before bedtime and I keep forgetting, so now I take it after eating my last meal of the day and it's not so bad. I use an insu-pen which is MUCH better than a regular needle. If you need to take insulin - ask for the PEN rather than the needle. Inject your most fatty part of your body and you won't feel a thing!
Cost: < $25 monthly
