Dear forum visitors,

Our forum has been available for many years. In September 2014 we decided to switch it to read-only mode. Month after month we saw less posts with questions and answers from real people and more spam posts. We were spending more and more resources cleaning the spam until there were less them 1 legitimate message per 100 spam posts. Then we decided it's time to stop.

All the posts in the forum will be available and searchable. We understand there are a lot of useful information and we aren't going to remove anything. As for the new questions, you can always ask them on FaceBook page

Thank you for being with us and sorry for any inconveniences this could caused.

How are cc's converted to units?

I have no real medical training, so please regard this as a tentative answer. However, my son is diabetic. When he was younger, we had to measure and inject his doses.

My understanding is that it varies and is included in the "name", U-xxx, where the xxx is the number of "units" per milliliter. Most common in the US is U-100, 100 units per mL. It does come in a few different strengths, with the idea of a "reasonable" size dose volume so it is easy to measure in syringe.
