NUR 1172 How many grams of carbohydrate are covered by one unit of short acting insulin?

Answer:

One unit of short acting insulin will cover approximately 10 grams of carbohydrate.

Short acting insulin is used to treat hyperglycemia, or high blood sugar. It works rapidly, on average within 30 minutes. The amount of short acting insulin needed to control a high blood sugar level depends on your current blood sugar level and the carbohydrate content of your meal (or snack).
