Insulin Reaction (cont.)
IN THIS ARTICLE
Insulin Reaction Prevention
People with diabetes need to be vigilant to maintain their blood sugar levels within the normal range. Diet, exercise, and proper insulin dosing need to be continually monitored to prevent hypoglycemia and insulin reactions.
Insulin Reaction Prognosis
Insulin reactions are a common situation and are usually easily treated with little consequence.
If the episode occurs when the patient is driving, using heavy machinery, or otherwise engaged in a potential risky situation, injury may occur.
Patients may develop significant organ damage if blood sugars remain low for a prolonged a period of time.
