Produced by the pancreas, Insulin, is among the several digestive enzymes and endocrine secretions produced by our body to digest the food we eat. It helps the cells to absorb glucose from the blood. Diabetes occurs when the production of insulin is either insufficient or if the body is unable to use it for some reason.

If you take Regular insulin you should generally take it 15 to 30 minutes before a meal. If you take insulin lispro which works very quickly, you should generally take it less than 15 minutes before you eat.
Without insulin, people with type 1 diabetes suffer a condition called Diabetic Ketoacidosis. If left untreated, people die quickly and usually alone.

Insulin resistance is becoming more common in people living with type 1 diabetes. Generalized insulin allergy is rare. But sometimes it can create allergic reactions immediately after the injection. Moreover, there is a rising trend of overweight and increased risk of gastrointestinal adverse effects among individuals with type 1 diabetes. This is often associated with insulin resistance, increased insulin dose requirements, and poor glycemic control.
