)-- Type 1 Diabetes sufferers can breathe a sigh or relief; diluted insulin injections are readily available at Teregen Labs. Diabetes affects an estimated 20 million people in the United States, of that an estimated 2 million people suffer from Type 1 Diabetes, which requires insulin injections to control the disease that usually begins in childhood. When a Diluted Insulin Injection is needed, often when a patient is on an insulin pump, things typically get worse for diabetes sufferers. Retail pharmacies in the United States do not dispense Diluted Insulin Injections, leaving millions of people scrambling to find compounding pharmacies that can prepare it in a sterile environment, at an affordable price. For many reasons, such as age, weight and diet, or if the dose needed is not commercially available, physicians will often prescribe diluted insulin injections.
Pharmacists at Teregen Labs, a compounding pharmacy in Ohio can prepare diluted insulin, in their class 100, sterile cleanroom, in response to the growing need not met through retail pharmacies. “We had a mother the other day call us quite concerned about her child’s recent diagnosis, she couldn’t find any retail pharmacies that could prepare Diluted Insulin Injections," explains Frank Johnson, Teregen Labs responsible pharmacist. “We explained to her that we prepare diluted insulin injections in a sterile cleanroom facility like Teregen Labs has, that retail pharmacies do not.”
Teregen Labs regularly dilutes Insulin for diabetes sufferers with a valid prescription from their physician faxed into their pharmacy for an affordable price. “Many places overcharge people for diluted insulin injections, and that’s just unfair, we don’t over charge people and we make it easy for them to get their medication. We prepare it at an affordable price, without compromising our standards,” explains Frank Johnson, RPh.
