Davida F. Kruger, MSN, APN-BC, BC-ADM; Serge Jabbour, MD; and Robert Hood, MD, identify the barriers to patient adherence with insulin when treating diabetes and discuss how simplified regimens might circumvent many of these issues.

Insulin Pens: Improving Adherence And Reducing Costs

The advantages offered by insulin pens may help improve patient adherence. Currently 8.3% of the United States adult population, or 25.8 million people, have diabetes. Of these cases, more than 90% are cases of type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2DM) and at least 1 million are estimated to be cases of type 1 diabetes mellitus (T1DM). Although a variety of oral medications are available for patients with diabetes, insulins remain an important component of treatment.1,2 Insulins are the standard therapy in patients with T1DM and are ultimately used in patients with T2DM who do not respond adequately to other treatment modalities. Although in some settings insulins may be administered intravenously (eg, with an insulin pump), the vast majority of insulin administrations are subcutaneous injections.1,2 Available Forms and Administration In the United States, 2 types of insulins are available: recombinant human insulins and insulin analogs. Recombinant human insulin is available from 2 manufacturers (Humulin by Eli Lilly and Novolin by Novo Nordisk); each of these is available in a regular form and in a longer-acting neutral protamine hagedorn (NPH) form. Unlike recombinant human insulins, insu Continue reading >>

    Can't Afford these Pens

    Hello to All! I am a newbe here and I usually don't get on forums but this looked like a good one to start with.So this is why I'm here...I lost my insurance in Nov. and tried get with the ACA marketplace but was a total nightmare. I finally got some insurance through a private company. I am on Levemir FlexPens and still had current prescription for 3 boxes of pens 5 in each box. My new insurance told me to go to Walmart Pharmacy. Total cost $ 1000 yes one thousand. Ins did pay$ 365 but I can't afford to stay on these Pens. Does Walmart sell it's own brand of insulin a lot cheaper in a vial ? Is it compatible to Levemir. Thanks for any help in advance. Also I can't type very fast..sorry

Insulin 101

OK, I want to talk about insulin here. I'm going to talk about how to use it properly, the different types, and what to expect from it. But first and foremost I'm going to talk about safety. Insulin is nothing to fuck around with, and if you're fairly new to the world of performance enhancement and/or nutrition and training, don't even consider doing something like insulin!! Insulin can kill you quick. I'm talking about a dirt nap within a couple hours if you're not careful. HOWEVER, there are really only a couple ways you can fuck it up. The biggest way to fuck up insulin is incorrect measurement. If I tell you to take 5 units of insulin and you load up 5cc's as you would a steroid shot, or even load up 5 units as you would a GH shot, you are probably going to die. 5 units of insulin means 5 tiny little lines or “clicks” on an insulin syringe. It will look like hardly anything in the needle, this is powerful shit and it doesn't take much at all to do it's job. The second biggest way to fuck up insulin is to not eat properly after administering it. As a general rule, for every 1 unit of insulin you inject, you need to take 10 grams of carbohydrates with it. This needs to be don Continue reading >>

    I have been looking for an alternative to Novolog and Levemir b/c they are just too expensive. My doctor's office called around for me and found Wal-Mart. Their pharmacy sells Novilin-N and R for 1/4 of what my pharmacy charges for my "newer" insulins. I am switching ASAP. You can't just switch over but have your doctor tell you how to convert to a different insulin. But it's a HUGE savings to me.

    I think doctors are taught (for sure encouraged) to prescribe the newest and most expensive drugs. Wal Mart seems to be out to HELP people with cheaper drugs so thay can afford what they need.

How To Get Insulin At A Cheaper Price

Insulin can be expensive. If you’re one of the 6 million Americans with diabetes relying on this main-stay treatment, you could be paying out-of-pocket costs anywhere from $120 to $400 per month, according to a 2015 New England Journal of Medicine commentary. Drugs such as Lantus (insulin glargine) and Levemir (insulin detemir) have seen significant cost increases, according to a recent trend report by pharmacy benefit manager Express Scripts. One reason for the high prices is the lack of generic options for insulin. So for now, you’re stuck having to search around to find affordable options. Where do you shop for more affordable insulin? For some people though, high drug costs can mean making difficult financial choices. Our national polls show people might cut back on groceries and paying bills to pay for their medications. To minimize your costs, consider these options: Prescription Assistance Programs If you don’t have health insurance or are without drug coverage, look into applying for a patient assistance program (PAP). Through the nonprofit NeedyMeds, you can find some programs that offer free or low-cost insulin as long as you meet the eligibility requirements. Those Continue reading >>
