Factors leading to diabetes are - Diets too rich in fats and carbohydrates - Obesity or general poor fitness - Less exercise - Increased age Although no single factor is a cause by itself, a continuing combination of these factors is usually present when diabetes is diagnosed

A contributing factor is the rise of better health care and increased treatment for pets

The U refers to actual units of active insulin

This syringe allows for more simplified and accurate dosing of U-40 medications, without complicated mathematical conversions, giving diabetic pet owners an ease-of-use and level of accuracy that had not been available until now.

Though not a diluted form of insulin, U-40 is weaker, thus allowing for larger, more easily measurable doses for small animals

Today, that has changed with many pet owners providing the same level of treatment and medical diagnostics we provide to our families

U-100 syringes are specially designed to provide the proper dose of U-100 insulin

Usually designated as U-40 Insulin , U-40 differs from the standard U-100 Insulin that is prescribed for people with diabetes in the way that it is measured

With small animals, however, it is very difficult to achieve the proper dosage with U-100 insulin, the insulin primarily used by people in the United States
