WHY INSULIN IS NOT GIVEN ORALLY
Insulin is a protein hormone that is broken down by digestive enzymes in the stomach and intestines if taken orally.
Oral insulin is not effective in controlling blood sugar levels because it is not absorbed properly by the body.
Insulin resistance, a condition in which the body does not respond properly to insulin, can also make oral insulin ineffective.
Because it avoids the digestive system and enters the circulation, injectable insulin is the most effective insulin delivery method.
There are several types of injectable insulin, including rapid-acting, short-acting, intermediate-acting, and long-acting insulin.
A syringe, an insulin pen, or an insulin pump can all be utilized in the process of injecting injectable insulin.
