How do you or your child receive insulin most of the time?
Poll dates: February 20 - 27, 2000
Total Votes: 1,126
While scientists are working on inhaled and oral forms of insulin, as of today it must be taken by some sort of injection. Most people report using only syringes (52%), with insulin pumps being used by the next largest number (19%). Pens are quite popular outside the United States, but aren't used very much in the US in spite of the convenience they offer for single types of insulin. A pen with Humalog is especially convenient for kids to keep at school, to use in case of high blood sugar during the day.
