Why Are Some Patients of Diabetes Treated by Giving Injections of Insulin? - Science


Why are some patients of diabetes treated by giving injections of insulin?


Solution 1

Diabetes is caused due to less or no secretion of hormone insulin by pancreas. In such a person, blood sugar level is high. Insulin converts extra sugar present in blood into glycogen. Thus, patients suffering from diabetes are given insulin injection to control their blood sugar level.

Solution 2

Diabetes is caused by high sugar level in blood. Diabetic patients are treated by giving injections of insulin as it lowers the blood sugar level by controlling the metabolism of sugar.
