Can i reduce my insulin dosage. I have no other disease except diabetes

I have diabetes , I have no other diseases, why can't I reuse my insulin needles? I DON T, but I was just wondering why they say you can t. I have no diseases other than diabetes (been tested) and they say you should never re-use a needle. I never have, but I was wondeirng the reasoning behind this. all of that makes perfect sense. thanks.

The reason is simple.. even if you dont have any other still stand a chance of getting other unfections due to used needles..and once any infection is sets in, then it is very dificult to treat in diabetics.. so why take chances at all????
