Approximately 26 percent of the 18.8 million Americans diagnosed with diabetes follow an insulin regimen recommended by their healthcare provider in order to manage their condition i. Many people with diabetes are prescribed insulin, either because their bodies do not produce insulin or do not use insulin properly. ii

Abbott′s interactive infographic takes the user through a "day in the life" of an insulin-using patient, which can include a complex routine of regular blood glucose monitoring, counting and logging carbohydrates, and calculating and injecting precise doses of insulin.
