Is Humulin 70-30 easier to measure?

Yes, it may be easier to measure Humulin 70/30 than it is to measure the two insulins separately because they are combined. Separately, the volume of each insulin dose is smaller than the volume of the combination. Larger volumes are generally easier to measure in an insulin syringe than smaller volumes are, and measuring only once is easier than measuring twice. If you have any questions about your diabetes or insulin medications, talk with your doctor or healthcare provider.
