For people with diabetes type 1, the body’s immune system attacks the insulin-producing islet cells in the pancreas. The islet cells sense glucose in the blood and produce the right amount of insulin to normalize blood sugars. As a result, the sugar stay in the blood, which increase the blood sugar level.
Therefore, taking insulin injections or using an insulin pump or other device are common treatment for people with diabetes type 1. however, the amount of taking insulin should be as precise as possible, which will be based on the follow elements, stress, food, exercise and emotions, as well as general health.
If you take not enough insulin, the sugar will stay in your blood, leading to high blood level ,which may be dangerous to your health. In long term, taking too little insulin will damage your eyes, kidneys, heart, nerves etc.
However, if you take too much insulin, your blood sugar level may drop in a very short time, which is known as hypoglycemia.
Nowadays, more and more devices can help patients with diabetes to count the doge of insulin to take, with the computerized devices, which offers people with diabetes a better medical care.
