Brief Answer: quality of life Detailed Answer: Dear Sir Insulin has so many anabolic effects on the body like lipogenesis. If you supplement with insulin, it will help to maintain protein and lipid balances so that you will maintain weight and energy. Insulin deficiency causes loss of fat and protein mass, which in turn causes weight loss. Insulin increases the body defense systems by indirect mechanisms. So overall insulin is good. Leading manufacturers of insulin are novo nor disk and biocon. You can select your type of insulin from any one of these Thanks
