Insulin is an important hormone that keeps your body working. If a person doesn't make enough of this substance, he or she may need to get insulin injections, or shots. There are many types of injectable insulin, both short- and long-acting. Most people with diabetes take insulin injections based on their blood glucose levels, according to a plan that they've worked out with their doctor.
