4. Vertigo
1. Price
2. Talking Hard
1. Coldness
1. Pale skin

Now we come to the second type, which has other side effects besides the ones I mentioned

@kati32,
Every medication has side effects.

However, the alternative of not taking insulin for diabetes is much more life threatening than the potential side effects.

And often times the side effects are very rare and unproven however, if it happened one time - they include this as a potential side effect to protect the drug manufacturer. Your list does not note which side effects are common vs rare.

The "side effects" disclaimer isn't bigger in any, even the softer medication, because printing a bibble would be too expensive.

I take it to mean a hoarseness. Maybe it's a side effect of the insulin side effect of getting a cold.

I guess the o.p. feels a a diabetic come is preferable.

My mother took insulin and never had any of the side effects which were listed.

She had good medication insurance and was rather pale from the start as well as often feeling cold. The food and pale were there long before she was on insulin.

Maybe her hypothetical list is created from a foreign language to poorly translated into English? Yep. Talking hard is a symptom that eludes me as well. Maybe the original foreign language is idiomatic? Or very likely pulled from the poster's own undereducated ass.

@tsarstepan,
Maybe slurred speech that is the closest potential side effect I can see.
