Multiple Daily Injections (MDI) – Featuring Dr. Henry Anhalt, DO

TAKING CONTROL OF YOUR DIABETES® - THE PODCAST! ...With Expert Endocrinologists Living with T1D, Drs. Steven V. Edelman & Jeremy Pettus

The majority of people living with diabetes around the world that take insulin are on multiple daily injections (MDI), yet it’s a topic not often covered. We’re sitting down with Dr. Henry Anhalt to discuss how people living with diabetes can be successful with MDI. We’ll cover all of the “rules” given when it comes to injection technique and point out which rules should be followed and which ones can be ditched and we’ll also talk about the pros and cons of pumps, pens, and syringes

Questions We’ll Cover in This Episode:
  • How do I know if I’m using the right basal insulin dose?
  • What if I prefer MDI to pumps?
  • What do I need to know about injection technique?
  • What is a misconception about needle size?
  • Why do I need to change my needle?
  • Why is priming the needle/pen important?
  • What injection rules do I need to follow and what can I abandon?
  • What’s new in smart pens?
