Was giving insulin through dispovan injection, not able to get syringe. Suggest dosage for another syringe? - Online Doctor Chats
Good Mornign Doctor
I have a small doubt
with Dispovan 1ml syrange having(0.1,0.2,0.3,0.4,....etc) marks on it. I will take the isulin medicine till 0.4 XXXXXXX
But recently iam not able to get same type of syrange. I took yesterday 40UI syrange having marks(5,10,15,20,25,...etc).
My doubt is 0.4 in one syrange is how much in 40UI injection.
My doubt is 0.4 in old syrange is how much in 40UI syrange.
Yes, 0.4 ml is 40 U of insulin approximately
How much in 40UI syrange having marks (5,10,15,20,25,...etc)
See, you must use insulin syringe to take insulin and not the regular dispovan
While you take insulin in regular dispovan, the dose is not accurate
That is why the insulin syringe is made
Are you there?
I have measured medicine in old dispovan syrange(0.1,0.2,0.3,0.4,) to new syrange of 40UI syrnage (5,10,15,20,25,..), it is coming like 17 reading.
Do you have the insulin syringe now?
I mean, do you use the insulin syringe now?
How much insulin you need to give your grandmom?
New one is 40UI syrange
What is the marking on the new insulin syringe?
40UI syrnage (5,10,15,20,25,..)
You need to draw insulin upto just below the 5 XXXXXXX
Are you there?
Is this clear to you?
If you dont mine
We have given till now 0.4 in old syrange which is equal to 17 in 40UI syrange
It means these many days i have given over dosage
You are right
You have given overdosage
Is is a problem
How is your gradmom's general condition now?
We have started giving insulin injection because she has hospitilised 3 months back because of heperkalemia
How is her general health now?
That time we haev observed she has boold sugar, from that time we are giving this injection
Now she is fine, but evening she is saying shevering is coming and with small butter milk meal she is recovering
There is no major harm to her now
When do you give this 4 u ?
Before afternoon meal(one time per day)
That is right
Night time no injection
The shivering in evening is not because of insulin
It is because of other causes
Not to worry about this
Is anything damaged because of these many days i have given over dosage
Nothing is wrong
Your grandmom is fine
Hence on, give the right dose at right time
All should be fine
Are you able to see this link WWW.WWWW.WW
What do you want to know in this?
from the syrange diagrams below 5 means (till 4) i need to give right
This is not the actual insulin syringe
I would suggest you get back to a doctor in person to confirm on this
It would be ideal
Is that all for now?
Just last que?
is it fine if start i giving exact 4 units insuline, is it enough for her body, because her body is now adopted to use 17units of Insuline.
Can I call you now?
Bye from here
