Performing Conventional Insulin Therapy the diabetic injects mixed insulin twice a day, morning and evening. In some cases it makes sense to administer mixed insulin three times a day, at breakfast, lunch and dinner.
Conventional Therapy is the best choice for people with regular daily routine who are able to take their meals at fixed times. This is important because the combination of short and long acting insulin at fixed times requires regular intake of food to avoid hypoglycaemia.
The main advantage of the Conventional Therapy for the patient is that it can be easily performed due to the infrequent injections.
