Type 1 Diabetes

Type 1 diabetes is the type of diabetes that typically develops in children and in young adults. In type 1 diabetes the body stops making insulin and the blood sugar (glucose) level goes very high. Treatment to control the blood glucose level is with insulin injections and a healthy diet. Other treatments aim to reduce the risk of complications. They include reducing blood pressure if it is high and advice to lead a healthy lifestyle. What is type 1 diabetes? What is type 1 diabetes?

    Re: Insulin units to ml
    A dosing measure of insulin is always in units and should NEVER be converted to mL!
    There is a reason that the syringes are different. This is not a mathematical challenge, and trying to convert in such a fashion is foolish.
    Use insulin syringes for insulin, which is dosed in units.
    Use mL syringes for medications that are clearly dosed in mL.
    DO NOT (as the previous post stated) assume that 100units is 1cc
    ".......I'm using insulin syringes. I've got 1cc, 100 unit syringe......."
    This post is forcefully worded as the implications of mis-dosing insulin, or any other medication, can be VERY severe. Please be advised that if you do not have the correct syringe the answer to your problem is to get one - there are programs/pharmacies/hospitals that can help with this. It is never appropriate to try and "convert" or "make do".
    To recap:
    If you are dosing insulin, use units and an insulin syringe.
    If you are doing another medication, use a syringe that is appropriately marker (and of correct size to ensure accuracy).
    Finally, TB syringes are for TB tests! They should only be used for placement of PPD blebs by a healthcare professional. If this does not make sense to you, then you should be smart enough to know that you don't know enough to be dosing these medications safely. Stop. Seek informed advise, and know your limitations.

    Re: Insulin units to ml
    Not sure what hCG is but if one syringe is 30 units and you need 130 units, you need 4 and 1/3 syringes. But it seems like something your doctor or pharmacist should have made very clear to you, I think you should contact them directly. Better safe then sorry.
