MDI also imitates the body's way of administering insulin just as if the Pancreas was healthy. Insulin is administered when needed and not until then. Diabetics who take care of monitoring their levels and adjusting their insulin can enjoy more flexibility in their meals. Tune into this webinar to help your patients/clients understand MDI and better monitor their diabetes.
