I have never seen that 60 U of insulin thing.Insurance companies in the states and few in Canada will insure diabetes clients if they use less than 60 units of insulin daily which I thought was highly interesting according to their statistics. Their statistics claim that diabetics taking more insulin than 60 units/day will die sooner so why should we insure them. I had nothing to say to disprove those figures. Stats don't lie.
It does make you wonder, doesn't it?
It is absurd!
I use about 65 u a day, my average A1c for last year was 5.02, with a Standard Deviation of 14.
Not one diabetic in 10,000 does as well as me, according to my doctor.
Results are what affects your chances of complications, average glucose and variability, not what you did to get the results!
There was a book published many years ago with the title
"How to lie with Statistics"
