Medication names are notorious for having an obscene number of syllables and unnecessarily difficult spellings. Why drug companies feel the need to use Xs, Ys, and Zs five times more than the rest of the population does, I’ll never know. Insulin, sadly, is no different.
But this fact provides a great opportunity for you Word Whizzes out there, and those of you who have lots of experience with different types of insulin. Or, perhaps, those of you who are just great guessers and have a knack for multiple choice quizzes.
The ten-question quiz below will test your knowledge of different brands of insulin by asking you to pick the real brand out of a list of fake ones.
Watch out—there are some pretty tricky ones in there! And perhaps some hidden gems to make you giggle…
Don’t forget to share your results and challenge your friends to beat your score!
Best of luck!
