I’ve Been Prescribed Insulin and I’m So Confused

image

I’ve recently been prescribed insulin.  I’m so confused.

  • Why are there so many different types of insulin?
  • What is each type of insulin used for?
  • How does it work?
  • How do I take it?
  • What are mixed insulins?
  • What are U-100, U-200, U-300 and U500 insulins?
  • If I’m Type 2, should I take insulin?
  • If I’m Type 1, I have to take insulin anyways, why do I need to watch my diet?
