I am diabetic for last 5 years. I take only insulin (Novomix 30) to control it. Does insulin has any long term side effect?

In brief: Safe long term

Insulin is safe to use long term. One caution Is to make you you are taking the correct amount as too much can make the blood glucose go dangerously low.
