Taylor, Sarah CNP, MSN, CDE

Abstract: Administering large insulin doses to patients with severely insulin-resistant diabetes is often ineffective, expensive, and painful. U-500 regular insulin is absorbed better, less painful, and more cost-effective due to the reduced volume. This article describes the most recent guidelines for U-500 insulin in the clinical setting.
