the trivia time winner

=>Last month: we asked you to specify how many units of insulin are contained in one vial of U-100 insulin.

CONGRATS: Natalie Roy, a pharmacist from Timmins, Ontario, Canada whose son has T1D, for being the first person with the correct answer!

ANSWER: 1000 units.
U-100 means that there are 100 units in every milliliter of fluid, and there are ten milliliters in a vial. 100 x 10 = 1000. There are other concentrations of insulin (U-200 and U-500) as well as devices that contain less than 10 ml (most pens, for example, contain 3 ml). So it can get pretty confusing! Feel free to reach out if you ever have questions about insulin concentrations or container sizes.
