Your blood sugar drops. Assuming you are a diabetic, which would be the only reason you would take insulin, your blood sugar would go down. If you aren't a diabetic and you are taking insulin this could drop your blood sugar to dangerous levels. Causing you to pass out.
No, it is generally given subcutaneously andoccasionallyintravenously.
Some patients with Type II diabetes may need to use insulin injections if their diabetes cannot be controlled with diet, exercise, and oral medication. Injections are given subcutaneously
Insulin is administered as a subcutaneous injection, under most circumstances. In emergencies it can be given intravenously, if needed. Some patients will have an insulin pump, which carries a certain amount of insulin in a machine, which delivers a set amount per hour to the patient and allows the patient to give himself bolus injections when he eats. These provide the best glucose control, but are difficult for many patients to manage appropriately. Most will have a number of injections a day - usually a long acting insulin and rapid acting insulin they will give themselves when they eat. Talk to you Endocrinologist or diabetic educator about insulin injections and pumps if you would like more information about your insulin regimen.
Regular insulin is the only insulin that can be given by IV
Regular insulin is the only type of insulin that can be given intravenously.
It depends, because if you are on 2 injections a day then it means you would have to cut down on carbohydrate and sugar and do extra injections with a "rapid" which is a fast acting substance, if you are on 4 injections a day, then you basically have the same diet but you have to "carbohydrate count" where you work out how many carbs you eat at each meal, and depending on what the ration your G.P has given you, you then work out how many units of insulin to inject. e.g my ratio at lunch is 1:10 and lets say i have a sandwich of 40 carbs, i will have 4 units of rapid insulin (other diabetics may have a different insulin).
Injections just under the skin, so that you can see the needle while the medication is injected, are referred to as Intradermal. The PPD test for tuberculosis is administered this way. Injections administered into the layer below the skin are called subcutaneous. Insulin is administered this way. Injections which deliver medicine into a muscle are referred to as Intramuscular. Most immunizations are given this way, as are most antibiotic injections. Injections which deliver medicine directly into the bloodstream are referred to as Intravenous.
Regular insulin is given by subcutaneous route. It is also the only type of insulin preparation which can be given intravenously.
rubbing causes rapid release.... the main idea of giving insulin or anticoagulants is to have a sustained and slow release... Dr.Arun petla MBBS firstname.lastname@example.org
It really isn't. That is just a convenient place for i to e given because it is easy to reach for a person doing self injections and there is loose tissue that can be pinched.
If your cat has diabetes and isn't given insulin then it will eventually go into a coma and will die, but if it has the right amount of insulin it requires and is given the right food then your cat can live as long as a cat without diabetes.
IVIG can be given to people at very high risk for complications for chickenpox. Normally, no injections are given for chickenpox.
Botox injections can be given in any facial muscle
Subcutaneous means below the skin. There is potential space below the skin. There is no specific tissue called as subcutaneous tissue. Insulin injection and few other injections are given subcutaneously.
(cortizone) injections or (kenalog injections) can be given systemically to help reduce arthritis flares.
The number or injections that can safely be given is dependant on the patient's weight and the amount of Lidocaine you plan to administer.
Injections are given for treatment while vaccines are given to produce antbodies to protect the recipients from specific diseases
ONLY REGULAR insulin can be given IV.Rapid-insulin analogs (insulin aspart, insulin lispro and insulin glulisine) may also be administered intravenously for glycemic control in selected clinical situations under appropriate medical supervision.
Yes, there are some broiler chickens that are given injections for growth. Organic fed chickens are never given any injections.
Nasal insulin is insulin given by nasal spray (spray into the nose) instead of by injection.
Insulin is given subcutaneously or intramuscularly as it is too labile in the gastrointestinal tract to be give orally,
When given properly, they are relatively painless injections of supplemental insulin that need to be added to your bloodstream to maintain a safe and steady blood glucose (blood sugar) level. They are necessary because most or all of the insulin your pancreas produces is "destroyed" by your immune system when you have diabetes. ALWAYS use a new syringe for each injection for the obvious danger of infection, but a syringe is also the least painful (if at all) with its FIRST use. It's all downhill after that, like a new knife or razor blades.
The Hepatitis B immunization is given in a series of three injections over a six month period.
Regular Insulin (Humulin R)
