Insulin Mistakes: An Audience Survey

I often hear stories of insulin mistakes.

Sometimes people don't fully understand the insulin they're using or the potential challenges with using a particular insulin.

More often, people accidentally switch basal and bolus insulins (ie: Instead of taking long-acting insulin, they accidentally inject a large dose of rapid-acting insulin in its place) -

Or they inadvertently inject a second dose of insulin, forgetting they already took the scheduled dose and end up doubling their active insulin.

For many of us, these mistakes are easy to make when we're injecting 5-10x per day. That's 5-10 possible chances for mistakes. Per Day. Everyday.

We need to talk about these common insulin mistakes, learn how prevalent they are, and what techniques people are using to prevent them from happening in the future.

We need to hear from you. Please complete the short survey shown below. If it's easier to open the survey in another browser window, you can click this link instead.

Survey results will be posted here on the diaVerge site on Wednesday, February 27, 2019.
