dosage form, the dosage and the administration time of the insulin are
different due to the individual differences of each patient. In
addition, the dosage is also affected by food, working style and
exercising intensity. Therefore, patients should use the insulin under
doctor\'s instruction. The average range of total daily insulin
requirement for maintenance therapy in type 1 diabetic patients lies
between 0.5 and 1.0 IU/kg. In pre-pubertal children it usually varies
from 0.7 to 1.0 IU/kg, whereas in insulin resistant cases, e.g. during
puberty or due to obesity, the daily insulin requirement may be
substantially higher. Initial dosages for type 2 diabetic patients are
often lower, e.g. 0.3 to 0.6 IU/kg/day.
