Insulin Therapy and Nutrition

Sometimes patients are recommended so-called flexible insulin therapy, but this term is not used professionally.

Traditional insulin therapy is a treatment prescribed adequately for the patient’s condition, his sugar level.

It happens that the patient has very busy everyday life, and there is no opportunity to eat often and equally, because there is no stability. In such cases, the doctor may recommend insulin therapy (administration of insulin) according to the loads.

A patient with diabetes should always know how much he plans to get grams of carbohydrates, that is, bread units. And if he eats less carbohydrates, and the insulin dose is normal, he will have hypolycemia. If he eats more – he will have hyperglycemia. Which is better? It is better to have a small hyperglycemia than hypoglycemia.
