If a person on insulin therapy has too much insulin in the bloodstream, it can lead to hypoglycemia, or dangerously low blood sugar levels. Intensive insulin therapy can be an effective way of controlling blood glucose levels and minimising the risk of long term diabetic complications.

Intensive insulin therapy requires a lot of commitment and a good level of understanding of diabetes and therefore it may not be suitable for all people with diabetes.
