This printed publication provides factual information about the differences between natural animal insulins and synthetic analogue and human insulins and about the adverse effects that significant numbers of people experience with the synthetic analogue and human insulins.
It confirms the availability of pork and beef insulins in the UK and describes their duration and peaks of action. It acts as a reminder that people with diabetes do have a right to a choice of treatment and offers advice on how to change to animal insulin for those who feel they are not being heard by their health professionals. Describing patient experiences of the adverse effects that synthetic insulins can cause, provides confidence and support for those who feel isolated and alone.
