Patient education: insulin

An important part of diabetes management is controlling your blood glucose (sugar) levels. One way to do this is by using insulin. All people with type 1 diabetes and many with type 2 diabetes require insulin to manage their blood sugar levels.

These videos were created with the help of the Canadian Diabetes Association, the team in the Centre for Diabetes and Endocrinology at St. Michael’s Hospital, health-care providers from across Canada, and people living with diabetes who currently use insulin.
