Fda Says 'yes' To Short-acting Insulin Admelog

The FDA granted full approval for the first "follow-on" version of short-acting insulin lispro, to be sold as Admelog and indicated for improving glycemic control, the agency announced Monday. The approval covers use in adults with type 2 diabetes, as well as in adults and children at least 3 years old with type 1 diabetes. Typically administered prior to meals, the insulin can be given via injection, through an insulin pump, or by intravenous infusion. Admelog, developed by Sanofi, is a follow-on to Eli Lilly's insulin lispro sold as Humalog and was therefore reviewed under the abbreviated 505(b)(2) pathway, which is separate from the FDA's so-called biosimilar pathway although functionally there is little to distinguish them.

    What will happen if you miss a dose of insulin?

    I have been a diabetic, Type 2 since 1986. It is not easy to watch what you eat,and to exercise when you have bad legs and a sensitive stomach. Also, I am not getting any younger, I am 60 years old. I take insulin 4 times a day, I test 4 times a day. Can anyone give me advice and be able to tell me what happens if I miss a dose of insulin?

The long answer is that depending on how your body works you may start to see stones in your urine and if you go too long without inwulin, possibly go into DKA. That would be if your body does not produce any insulin and your blood sugar gets quite high.
