How much insulin do you use per day, on average?

Poll dates: January 25 - February 1, 2012
Total Votes: 210

For people living with type 1 diabetes, daily insulin use varies by age, activity level, food eaten, and countless others variables. The goal for this poll was to get a general sense of insulin use among the CWD community.

Looking at just the numbers, the average number of units per day for those who responded to this poll is 37. That makes sense given that the majority of our audience is parents of kids with type 1 diabetes.
