It is taken to replace the insulin that is not sufficiently produced by the body and helps properly deliver glucose into cells.
Typically it is prescribed by doctors along with long-acting insulin types and other diabetes medications.
Fiasp insulin should be used as part of a treatment program that should incorporate a proper diet, regular exercise, and weight loss as instructed by your doctor.
