Just got put on insulin for the first time. I get my prescriptions by
mail and the first batch came today. I can't read my doctors
handwriting, but he told me that I would be taking a small dose. The
bottles say 15 units/night. Does this sound right?
i have to say that I was expecting something like 10 vials to come,
but only 2 ( each 10 ml ) came. The pharmarcy is pretty good but does
make an occasional error and I would like to make sure that they
didn't this time. Does 2 vials for 3 months at 15 units/night sound
I will be going back to my doctors office sometime this week ( for the
nurses to show me how to inject myself ), and I would like to have
this right before I go. Thanks.
Not sure what kind of insulin you are using (there are a variety of
kinds) but it is probably Lantus or similar kind because you say you
are �injecting once at night.
There are 100 units of insulin per mL, so each 10 mL vial would
contain 1000 units. If you inject 15 units a night you would use 900
units in two months so it seems that you have double what you will
Oops I just realized you said 3 months. You would then need approx
1350 units and even with that you still have more than enough.
