Caption: Insulin injection. 76-year-old woman injecting herself in the abdomen with insulin. She has diabetes mellitus. This disorder affects glucose sugar metabolism, where sugar is not oxidised due to a lack of the pancreatic hormone insulin. Treatment is based on a strict diet and the use of daily insulin injections to maintain the blood-sugar balance. This is a pre-filled insulin pen used by diabetics. It has a dial at one end for metering out the correct dose of insulin.
