Actrapid Vs Novorapid

Actrapid & Novorapid

Actrapid & Novorapid

wat is defrent between actrapid and novorapid? Actrapid is long lasting, it's on-set time is about 30 - 60min and it's in your system for about 8 hours. This is not the type of insulin you want to use for sport enhancing reasons. Novorapid is much different. It's on-set time is about 15 minutes and it's in your system for about 4 hours post injection. This is what you want if you are looking at using insulin. as i saw actrapid, i wanted to ask after how long it starts to get out of the system after injection 'either actrapid or , humalinr'? more precisely after how much time approximately am i able to start eating normally- to the 8hrs if not done im????? or after 5hrs its safe to get in some small ammount of fat? Actrapid is in your system for about 8 hours and humalin-r is in your system for about 6 hours. To take full advantage of insulin you shouldn't consume any fats while insulin is active. Because that's when insulin is mostly beneficial due to its nutrient shuttling properties.

Types Of Insulin For Diabetes

Types Of Insulin For Diabetes

Articles Insulin injections are more often associated with Type 1 Diabetes. All people with Type 1 Diabetes will require insulin injections for life, however some people with Type 2 Diabetes may progress to insulin dependence. There are many types of insulin available. The type of insulin you take will depend on many factors, including your individual reaction to insulin, lifestyle, exercise regimen and eating patterns. Your insulin regimen will aim to keep your BGL within the healthy range of 3.5-7.8mmol/L. This will require self blood glucose monitoring on a regular basis, and keeping records of your BGL to see if any alterations are needed in the future. There are five classes of insulins, as seen below. Fast Acting Insulin eg Novorapid, Humalog, Apidra Onset of action: 10-15 minutes Peak of action: 1-2 hours Duration of action: 4-5 hours Fast acting insulin is absorbed very quickly into the blood stream and should be injected right before a meal. This is convenient because you do not have to wait the usual 30 minutes before you can eat, as with regular insulin. Short Acting Insulin eg Actrapid, Humilin R Onset of action: 30 minutes Peak of action: 2.5-5 hours Duration of action: 8 hours This insulin begins to work 30mins after injection, so must be injected 30mins before a meal. This can be difficult when eating out, or if you are unsure how much the person on insulin is going to eat at each meal. Intermediate Acting Insulin eg Protaphane, Humilin NPH Onset of action: 3 hours Peak of action: 4-8 hours Duration of action: 16-24 hours Due to its longer acting time, intermediate insulin is often used as the ‘basal’ insulin replacement in intensive insulin therapy for type 1diabetes, with fast acting insulin boluses given at meal times. It is also used for insulin a Continue reading >>

Oder vielleicht ob sich die Basalversorgung dadruch gendert hat? ich habe beide Insuline vor kurzen parallel benutzt, habe festgestellt, das Actrapid durch die lngere Wirksamkeit die notwendigen Korrekturen vor dem Schlafen reduziert. Allerdings knnen grere Mengen auch nchtlichen UZ verursachen. Das von Dir beschriebene Phnomen (auch aus dem Diskutierfred) ist auf die krzere Wirksamkeit des Novorapid zurckzufhren. Ich mut relativ oft noch vor dem Schlafen korrigieren (bei Novorapid), obwohl die Basis nachgewiesener Maen funtkioniert. Scheinbar ist abends die Verdauung langsamer und man it eher langsame KH + EW. Falls Du noch Actrapid hast, kannst Du es abends mal ausprobieren. Zu den anderen Mahlzeiten war es bei mir nicht optimal, da der pp zu lange oben bleibt. Things change. They always do, it's one of the things of nature. Most people are afraid of change, but if you look at it as something you can always count on, then it can be a comfort.

Novorapid Vs Actrapid .. Which Is Better ?

Novorapid Vs Actrapid .. Which Is Better ?

NovoRapid VS Actrapid .. which is better ? Registration is fast, simple and absolutely free so please,join our community todayto contribute and support the site. This topic is now archived and is closed to further replies. NovoRapid VS Actrapid .. which is better ? What the pros and cons for these 2 types of insulin? They both have different action profiles. I believe actrapid takes longer to start working (30 minutes?) and novorapid start to work in around 10 minutes (marketed figure). Some people use both depending on the type of food they eat. I tried using them both when i was on MDI, but managing three insulins wasn't for me. that's about all I know about that! (forest gump styleeee) Actrapid is the older fast standard, "fast insulin" class. I was started on that in 1993. Novorapid is the newer fast standard, "rapid class" insulin. Humalog and Apidra are also rapids. Novorapid came along sometime near the year 2000. While the difference in speed between rapid class insulins is often negligible, older "fast" insulin like Actrapid was/is usually significantly slower. Actrapid took upwards of an hour to start working significantly for me at it's best, compared to about 20 min for Novorapid. Hi Foo. I've never used Actrapid and can't comment on your original question. Just wanted to welcome you to DF! What the pros and cons for these 2 types of insulin? Actrapid is what we call Regular in the USA. As Subby said, it takes longer to start working and it hangs around longer than Novorapid (Novolog here in the USA). Before I got my pump I was using Humalog, another fast acting insulin similar to Novorapid. I still liked to keep Regular (actrapid) on hand because it worked much better with foods that took longer to digest like pizza, fast food, restaurant meals. Anything w Continue reading >>

Novorapid Flexpen From Novo Nordisk, Insulin - Actrapid To Human Prodica | Drugsupdate India

Novorapid Flexpen From Novo Nordisk, Insulin - Actrapid To Human Prodica | Drugsupdate India

Novorapid Flexpen from Novo Nordisk contains Insulin Below are some of the details of Insulin(generic) Insulin is a hormone that is central to regulating energy and glucose metabolism in the body. Insulin causes cells in the liver, muscle, and fat tissue to take up glucose from the blood, storing it as glycogen in the liver and muscle. Insulin stops the use of fat as an energy source. When insulin is absent, glucose is not taken up by body cells and the body begins to use fat as an energy source, for example, by transfer of lipids from adipose tissue to the liver for mobilization as an energy source. As its level is a central metabolic control mechanism, its status is also used as a control signal to other body systems (such as amino acid uptake by body cells). In addition, it has several other anabolic effects throughout the body. When control of insulin levels fails, diabetes mellitus will result. As a consequence, insulin is used medically to treat some forms of diabetes mellitus. Patients with Type 1 diabetes mellitus depend on external insulin (most commonly injected subcutaneously) for their survival because the hormone is no longer produced internally. Patients with Type 2 diabetes mellitus are insulin resistant, and because of such resistance, may suffer from a relative insulin deficiency. Some patients with Type 2 diabetes may eventually require insulin if other medications fail to control blood glucose levels adequately, though this is somewhat uncommon. Insulin also influences other body functions, such as vascular compliance and cognition. Once insulin enters the human brain, it enhances learning and memory and in particular benefits verbal memory. Insulin is a peptide hormone composed of 51 amino acids and has a molecular weight of 5808 Da. It is produced Continue reading >>

Insulin Types And Information

Insulin Types And Information

Tweet There are a number of types of insulin available. From rapid acting to long acting, from animal insulin through to analogue insulins. Insulin can be categorised by how the insulin is derived and how quickly it acts. Forms of insulin Animal insulin, as the name suggests, comes from animals. Human insulin is misleading as it doesn't, in fact, come from humans. Instead, human insulin is a laboratory made insulin. Analogue insulin is a type of lab grown human insulin which is modified to affect how quickly or slowly it acts. Speed of insulins Each of these types of insulin can also be categorised by the speed at which they works. This is termed the action of the insulin. Action of insulin varies from rapid acting insulins which can start to work almost immediately after being injected, through to long acting insulins which can keep working for up to a day, and some can last even longer. In between, there are short acting and intermediate insulins. Mixed or combination insulins Mixed or combination insulins are where a shorter acting insulin is combined with a longer acting insulin. On the plus side, this can mean less injections and can help to make dosages simpler. The disadvantage though, is that premixed insulins allow for less flexibility with tailoring your doses. Tweet Type 2 diabetes mellitus is a metabolic disorder that results in hyperglycemia (high blood glucose levels) due to the body: Being ineffective at using the insulin it has produced; also known as insulin resistance and/or Being unable to produce enough insulin Type 2 diabetes is characterised by the body being unable to metabolise glucose (a simple sugar). This leads to high levels of blood glucose which over time may damage the organs of the body. From this, it can be understood that for someone wi Continue reading >>

Actrapid Vis. Novorapid : Unteschied ?

Actrapid Vis. Novorapid : Unteschied ?

Bin seit kurzem in Schweden wohnhaft und hier luft alles ein wenig anders !? Heute habe ich an Stelle von Actrapid nun NovoRapid bekommen. Da kein Arzt zum Fragen dort war, stelle ich hier die Frage, wo liegt der Unterschied, bzw. wie verhalten sich die beiden Insuline in ihrer Wirkung ? Zus. verwende ich noch Humalog und Lantus. Ich bin Bert und Lebe seit dem Sommer 2009 alleine in Nord Schweden auf meiner kleinen Farm. Habe Zucker seit dem 13. Lebensjahr und Lebe immer noch ! Pen/Insulinpumpe: Medtronic Veo 754 mit FIASP und Sure-T AW: Actrapid vis. NovoRapid : Unteschied ? Wenn du zustzlich Humalog verwendest, brauchst du das Novorapid eigentlich nicht, denn das wirkt fast genauso. Actrapid wirkt lnger (ca. 4-6 Stunden) als Novorapid und Humalog, die beide etwa 3-4 Stunden wirken. Wann verwendest du denn normalerweise Actrapid und wann Humalog? AW: Actrapid vis. NovoRapid : Unteschied ? NovoRapid ist von der Wirkdauer her vergleichbar mit Humalog. Beide sind schnell wirkende Insulinanaloga. Vielleicht nicht so das, was du haben wolltest. Wenn du dir die Wirkkurven fr eine beliebige Dosis anschauen mchtest, dann schau mal hier: Wirkkurve individuell . Die Wirkkurven im direkten Vergleich, leider ohne Angabe der Dosis zeigt dieser Link Vielleicht kannst mit den Wirkkurven zum Arzt/Apotheke, oder wo immer in Schweden das Insulin verordnet wird, hin und es umtauschen. AW: Actrapid vis. NovoRapid : Unteschied ? Werde nun mit den gegebenen Mitteln halt ein mal am Tag ffter Spritzen, weil die Zeit der Wirkung nun etwas verkrzt sind. Ende Aug. ist wieder der Arzt im Gesundheitszentrum und dann kann ich auch meine Entwicklung mit der Umstellung mitteilen. Da ich Abends immer noch Actrapit gespritzt hatte, habe ich im Moment das Gefhl, das mein Zucker in den frhen Moorgenstun Continue reading >>

Join the community I've been on novorapid for years and years......recently heard from a gentleman who switched from novorapid as he felt it wasn't working for him anymore, to actrapid, and his insulin needs came right down. any thoughts? he was on novorapid 1.5 for 10g as I am at the mo also I'm on lantus at the mo but have been on levemir.....will react at injection site to both at one time or another.....I already split the dose, 22 in the morn and 14 at night.....anything else that may help improve this? animal long says it last 28 - 36 hours....would this be more beneficial? I used to take Actrapid, but was taken off of it a few years ago. I now take NovoRapid and Levemir. Different Insulins can affect people differently. Actrapid is a slower and longer acting insulin than Novorapid, I was on it before moving to Novorapid and it was OK but not fast enough to deal with the digestion of carbs in the diet, but if you eat a very low-carb diet Megan the profile of Actrapid might suit you better, but if don't then overall Novo is the better of the two IMHO. As for your site reactions, ask to change to another basal, there was a new insulin that came out last year called Tresiba which might be worth a try, failing that one of the older insulins such as Insulatard might have less of a reaction.

How To Interpret Blood Glucose Monitoring Charts And Adjust Insulin Doses

How To Interpret Blood Glucose Monitoring Charts And Adjust Insulin Doses

Interpreting blood glucose results and being able to adjust insulin doses are useful skills for pharmacists to possess.The key to acquiring these skills is in understanding: The insulin regimen and the onset, peak and duration of action for the insulins used The glucose levels to aim for How to titrate insulin doses How all of the above relates to patients’ lifestyles and eating habits Understanding the regimen Insulin may be given alone or, for those with type 2 diabetes, with oral antidiabetic drugs (OADs), often metformin. Although this article focuses on adjusting insulin doses, readers should bear in mind that oral doses may also need to be adjusted. The three most commonly used insulin regimens are: Once daily intermediate-acting or long-acting insulin — normally given at bedtime or during the day, usually with an OAD Twice-daily pre-mixed insulin — one injection before breakfast, one before the evening meal (pre-mixed insulins contain fixed ratios of short- and long-acting insulins) Basal-bolus insulin — three daily injections of rapid- or short-acting insulin with meals and one or two injections of intermediate- or long-acting (basal) insulin The onset, peak and duration profiles of insulin products currentlyavailable in the UK are in the table. These should be used wheninterpreting a blood glucose result, to determine which insulin wasexerting its effect at the time of glucose measurement.

Insulin And Diabetes

Insulin And Diabetes

Insulin injections are required when the body produces little or no insulin, as with type 1 diabetes. They are also required for some people with type 2 diabetes when diabetes tablets, together with healthy eating and regular physical activity, are not enough to control blood glucose levels. What is insulin? Insulin is a hormone made by special cells, called beta cells, in the pancreas. When we eat, insulin is released into the blood stream where it helps to move glucose from the food we have eaten into cells to be used as energy. Insulin also helps store excess glucose in the liver. Why must it be injected? While ways of taking insulin by mouth or as a nasal spray are being developed, they are yet to become readily available. Insulin cannot be given in tablet form as the stomach would digest it, just as it digests food. What if I have to go on to insulin? For people with type 2 diabetes, starting on insulin can be a difficult and frightening decision to make. However, the many injection devices and tiny needles available today make injecting insulin much easier than most people imagine. In fact many say that they can feel the finger prick for monitoring blood glucose more than they can feel the needle used to inject insulin. When starting on insulin, your doctor and diabetes educator will help you adjust to the new routine. You may find that even with their help, it may take a while to find exactly the right dose to reduce your blood glucose to acceptable levels and to suit your particular lifestyle. Are there different types of insulin? There are 5 types of insulin ranging from short to long acting as insulin is classified according to how long it works in the body. Some insulins are clear in appearance, others cloudy. Everyone is different and will respond differentl Continue reading >>

Diabetes And Insulin

Diabetes And Insulin

On this page: Diabetes mellitus (diabetes) is a chronic and potentially life-threatening condition where the body loses its ability to produce insulin, or begins to produce or use insulin less efficiently, resulting in blood glucose levels that are too high (hyperglycaemia). Blood glucose levels above the normal range , over time, can damage your eyes, kidneys and nerves, and can also cause heart disease and stroke. An estimated 280 Australians develop diabetes every day. Diabetes is Australia's fastest-growing chronic disease. The main types of diabetes are type 1, type 2, and gestational diabetes. Type 1 diabetes Type 1 diabetes develops when the cells of the pancreas stop producing insulin. Without insulin, glucose cannot enter the cells of the muscles for energy. Instead the glucose rises in the blood causing a person to become extremely unwell. Type 1 diabetes is life threatening if insulin is not replaced, and people need to inject insulin for the rest of their lives. Type 1 diabetes often occurs in children and people under 30 years of age, but it can occur at any age. This condition is not caused by lifestyle factors. Its exact cause is not known but research shows that something in the environment such as the rubella virus can trigger it in a person that has a genetic risk. The body’s immune system attacks and destroys the beta cells of the pancreas after the person gets a virus because it sees the cells as foreign. Most people diagnosed with type 1 diabetes do not have family members with this condition. For more information about symptoms, visit the Diabetes type 1 fact sheet. Type 2 diabetes Type 2 diabetes develops when the pancreas does not make enough insulin and the insulin that is made does not work as well as it should (also known as insulin resistan Continue reading >>
