Levemir (insulin Detemir [rdna Origin] Injection)

Levemir (insulin detemir [rDNA origin] injection) LEVEMIR (insulin detemir [rDNA origin] injection) is a sterile solution of insulin detemir for use as an injection. Insulin detemir is a long-acting basal insulin analog, with up to 24 hours duration of action, produced by a process that includes expression of recombinant DNA in Saccharomyces cerevisiae followed by chemical modification. Insulin detemir differs from human insulin in that the amino acid threonine in position B30 has been omitted, and a C14 fatty acid chain has been attached to the amino acid B29. Insulin detemir has a molecular formula of C267H402O76N64S6 and a molecular weight of 5916.9. It has the following structure: LEVEMIR is a clear, colorless, aqueous, neutral sterile solution. Each milliliter of LEVEMIR contains 100 U (14.2 mg/mL) insulin detemir, 65.4 mcg zinc, 2.06 mg m-cresol, 16.0 mg glycerol, 1.80 mg phenol, 0.89 mg disodium phosphate dihydrate, 1.17 mg sodium chloride, and water for injection. Hydrochloric acid and/or sodium hydroxide may be added to adjust pH. LEVEMIR has a pH of approximately 7.4. The primary activity of insulin detemir is the regulation of glucose metabolism. Insulins, including ins Continue reading >>

    confused

    As I read the posts I get more and more confused. When I was initially diagnosed I was put on metformin and worked up to 1000mg 2x daily. In August I landed in the hospital and taken off the metformin and sent home on insulin with absolutely no instruction on how to administer it besides take novolog with meals and levemir at bedtime. I understand that I need to work on regular meal times but that is not always possible. My prescription says to take WITH meals but now I read where some take it before meals. When I was in the hospital I got it at various times depending on when the nurse got to me. Does it make a difference when I take the fast acting insulin? I take the Levemir at the same time every night. Should I set times throughout the day to take the Novolog or should I take it with a meal or before a meal? Any input is greatly appreciated. Oh, as for why I was taken off the met and on the insulin, I have no idea. I don't mind though as my readings are much lower with the insulin.

    I take my Lantus 2x a day also because when I was taking 1x it wouldn't last for the 24 hours. I take my Novalog or Humalog according to the amount of carbs I eat…there are some great books that help with carb counting and include several restaurants, name brand foods at your grocery store, etc. Just go to your local Waldenbooks or Borders and I believe the author's name is Corrine T Netzger…she has done several of these books. Once you figure out the things you eat most it's pretty easy. Hope this helps

    I'm on Lantus 2 x a day and Novalog with meals. I was told to take the Novolog within 10 minutes of eating. Good luck!

Are pill makers, Doctors & the diet industry scamming the public? NovoLog, Farxiga & Victoza commercials on TV..... I give my expert commentary. I know the hidden truth about diabetes. (update) There's now another pill for this (or another name for it: Januvia Update (early 2017) - OK, this is getting weird. I spotted 2 more similar commercials for 2 more pills: Invokana & Levemir UPDATE (9-10-2017) ANOTHER one - Tresiba ----------------------------------------- Low-fat diets have been proven to reverse diabetes. And Low-fat is more satisfying: you can eat as much as you want. It causes your body to revert to normal size(thin) and you get more vitamins and minerals which gives contentness and happiness. (We're designed for fruit, so we shouldn't give sugar the blame) Obesity, diabetes, etc, is mostly caused by putting carbs(refined is worse) WITH fat in a diet, which nature doesn't do with any food. Refined carbs are worse. The reason carbs and fat are maligned AND defended is they're only bad TOGETHER!!!! People with candida and diabetes who started a high-fruit low-fat diet, CURED it. The key is low-fat(according to Neal Barnard, M.D. , and Dr Graham) The reason: Too much fat blo

    I am a new to this forum and wanted to ask what the max people have taken of these two meds. I have been on injections for about a year. When I started, Endo said I would feel better very soon. Well still feel lously and my A1C has increased. They started me on very small amounts and am now on 40units of Levemir in the morning and 50units at bedtime. Also take about 25 units of Novolog at dinner and sometimes 10 to 15 units at lunch depending on what I have. My A1c is over 8. My GP says to increase meds slowly , that there is no max amount on these drugs. My Endo says no, dont increase as I may go under when I sleep. My morning bloods sugars are between 170 and 200. I am in the process of getting a thread mill and am getting religion as far as exercise goes. Want to know what the max amount of these drugs that people have taken. Am caught between two Doctors and am confused. Thanks for any thoughts. I am obviously insulin resistant and gained about 7 pounds since I started the insulin. Have just lost 3 of those pounds but am starving all the time. Thanks for your thoughts!

    Have you ever tried taking metformin? Some people end up taking it to reduce their insulin needs somewhat (doesn't work for everyone but if it does work it's a godsend). I take 34 units of levemir in the morning and 26 units of levemir at night. I have an I:C ratio of 1:9 for breakfast, and 1:7 or 1:8 the rest of the day (depending on the fat content, I have to take more if it has more fat ironically). My insulin sensitivity factor (for correcting highs) is 1:30 over 100 mg/dL. Please know that these numbers were obtained after lots of testing and changes in hormone levels (I'm pregnant so this is constantly in flux). I speak with a diabetes nurse who confirms or offers alternate suggestions on any changes in insulin dosing I require about 2 times a week (sometimes 3 though).
    How often do you test during the day? You mention you test your fasting numbers, but what other times are you testing?
    Fawn

    Lows are not close to being a problem for you yet. I would get a new endo and work on my dosage levels until my BG came down to safe levels. You have a lot of margin for error with your numbers being as high as they are. You could try to get your AM numbers down 100pts and still not be "low". Good luck.

Normally, taken morning and dinner time. Are you on both regular and time-release or just one? Are you using a premixed percentage insulin pen?

I give my daughter her 'night time' levimer between 7-8 at night Levemir and Lantus can be taken once a day or the dose can be split in half and taken once every 12 hours. It's best if you're only taking it once a day to take it opposite of your "high" time. For example, if you tend to run high in the morning, taking it at night may help. Just make sure you take it at the same time every day. It's nice to see what everyone is doing and what options there may be. Continue reading >>

    I know I am supposed to eat soon after taking the Novolog. Just wanting to be sure I have it right. I take my insulin right away after waking and then eat first thing in the morning. My practice in the morning is to take the two injections at the same time. You can actually share the needle but you must inject your rapid first, then switch the needle to the basal and inject your basal. You should plan on eating 15 minutes after injecting your Novolog.

    I know I am supposed to eat soon after taking the Novolog. Just wanting to be sure I have it right. Levamir is a Basel insulin(works all day long), it works for ~24 hours Novolog is a bolus insulin(works Fast) it is used for countering food or high BG. when they say dont mix the two they mean in the same syringe or inject the two into the SAME spot. when you take one has no effect on when you take the other.
