  • Injection sites must be rotated to prevent hard lumps from developing at one site.
  • Change to another type or brand of insulin should be done under strict medical supervision as it may require a change in dosage.
  • Hypoglycemia (low blood sugar level) may occur when taken along with other antidiabetic medicines, alcohol or on delaying/skipping a meal. Carry a sugar source with you for immediate relief.
