Hi, I am taking daily 38 units of Insugen 50/50 100 iu in Morning time and 30 units in Night time. Can I take same dosage 38 units and 30 units with Insugen 50/50 40iu with 100 units syringe?

Mr. lybrate-user, Thanks for the query. You can take insulin mentioned with a 40 units syringe, but you will have to change the quantity proportionately. 100 iu /ml has more insulin in one ml compared to 40 iu / ml vial. So the quantity has to be increased by 2.5 times. To get amount of insulin. To avoid this confusion, it is better to stick to 100 iu/ml Insulin. Thanks.
