If I feel better do I have to keep taking Humulin R?

Humulin R, like every insulin product, is simply a part of a treatment plan to control your diabetes. There is no cure for diabetes at this time. If you are being careful about eating healthy foods and exercising regularly, you may begin to feel better. Even if you do think that your diabetes has improved, do not stop taking your prescribed amounts of insulin. Talk with your doctor or healthcare provider about your improvements and how you can have long-term success with diabetes.
