In most cases, if you have type 1 you will be taking insulin a number of times a day. And, most likely because you are new to diabetes, the decision about which insulin to take and how to take it will be made by your health care provider. But as you learn more about the disease and improve your self-management skills, you will be able to participate more fully in your care.

If you have type 2 and are transitioning to insuli—or transitioning from taking one injection of basal insulin a day to a regimen that has you injecting insulin before each meal and a dose either at bed or in the morning—it can be anxiety provoking.

It is a stark indication that your pancreas is no longer providing sufficient insulin. Whether you have type 1 or type 2, if you need to take multiple injections of insulin a day, understanding the different ways insulin is titrated can be empowering—and having a discussion with your health care provider about which way may suit your circumstances the best, can diminish apprehension and give you a measure of control.

Fixed Dose With this method, a set amount of insulin is given at each meal, and the amount per meal can be the same or different. For example, someone may take 6 units at breakfast, 4 at lunch and 8 at dinner, or 8 for all meals. The advantage of this method is primarily ease-of-use. The amount is the same regardless of your blood glucose readings or what you eat.

The downside is its rigidity. If your blood sugar is very high before a meal, it is unlikely that the insulin given will be adequate to bring your glucose down to target levels after the meal.
