Many physicians are still hesitant to administer insulin. A great deal of this hesitancy is caused by lack of knowledge on how to practically giving insulin. If administrated correctly, insulin is one of means that effectively control blood glucose level. Insulin administration is often perceived as a daunting issue not only for the patients, but also for the physicians. Comprehensive understanding on insulin is expected to eradicate this fear. It is one of physician's roles to choose insulin type and dose. Another role which is no less important is to properly educate the patients, thus any common doubt and mistaken assumption can be put right.
