Novolin Vs Novolog

Novolog Vs. Novolin-r

Novolog Vs. Novolin-r

This is my first time on a forum such as this and I'm hoping to get some help... My girlfriend has had a real go lately with her Type 1 problems which include a hypoglycemic seizure a little less than a week ago - which resulted in 911, an ambulance, and everything. Since then, we've come home, but she ran out of her Novolog and can't get into an endocrinologist until April 30th to get a new prescription for her Novolog/Lantus. I'm sure most of you know the price of Novolog and Lantus without insurance are incredulous, and despite how much I want to be able to take good care of her, even I can't afford that. She's on a sliding scale with her Novolog of 1 unit for every 50 over 150. The question is -- will that same sliding scale work with Novolin-R? She's been doing it the same way, but we've noticed that her sugar levels have stayed high. She currently takes 29 units of Lantus in the evening and has enough of that to last, but her sugars have been anywhere from 250-500 in the last few days. Right now, she's sitting nicely around 130 -- thankfully -- but is experiencing severe nausea and pain (I'm assuming related to her neuropathy and/or gastroporesis.) In order to get her sugar levels to where they are now -- she hasn't been able to eat all day. Can anyone advise on the sliding scale differences between Novolog and Novolin-R? We just need to make it until her appointment on 4/30. At this point, we don't know what else to do... please help. Novolin-R has the same "strength" as Novolog, but the Novolog works much faster. (it also clears away faster). I use "R" all the time without a problem. However, the big problem here is not the Novolin vs Novolog, but rather that neither of you seem to have been told how insulin works, and how the different formulations of insulin Continue reading >>

Types Of Novolin Insulin

Types Of Novolin Insulin

Insulin is a vital hormone produced by the pancreas. Insulin is responsible for carrying the glucose received from food to the cells to be stored and used later as energy. When the pancreas is not able to produce insulin, such as in the disease Diabetes, insulin must be injected to control the level of sugar in the blood. Novolin insulin, a specific brand of insulin manufactured by the company Novo Nordisk, is available in several types. Novolin R Novolin R is referred to as "regular" insulin, meaning it is short-acting. This type of insulin is injected 30 minutes prior to mealtime as it begins to act lowering blood sugar between 30 and 60 minutes after injection. This insulin reaches its peak performance between two and three hours and is completely used up within five to seven hours. Novolin N Novolin N is an intermediate-acting insulin. This means that it begins to work between two and four hours after injection. Novolin N reaches its peak performance between 4 and 12 hours after injection. The effects of Novolin N will last between 14 and 20 hours after injection. Novolin L Novolin L is a lente insulin, meaning that it is human insulin in a zinc suspension. This insulin begins working two and a half hours after injection and reaches its peak between 7 and 15 hours after injection. Novolin L keeps working for up to 22 hours. Novolin 70/30 Novolin 70/30 is a combination consisting of 70 percent NPH (Normal Pressure Hydrocephalus) human insulin in suspension and 30 percent regular human insulin. This combination insulin is an intermediate-acting insulin however unlike other intermediate-acting insulin it begins to work 30 minutes after injection. Novolin 70/30 reaches its peak performance between 2 and 12 hours and will remain active in the body for up to 24 hours. Nov Continue reading >>

Novolog Mix 70/30 Confusion

Novolog Mix 70/30 Confusion

When prescribing NovoLog® Mix 70/30 analog insulin, health care professionals may write an unclear prescription, or if using an EMR system, inadvertently select Novolin® 70/30 human insulin instead. Be on the lookout for these errors. Read on for a breakdown of the key differences between these 2 types of insulin. Before the new “insulin pens” came out, there were four types of insulin: rapid-acting, short-acting, intermediate-acting, and long-acting. When it comes to the pre-mixed insulins, like Novolog 70/30, there are fewer differences between the brands (for example, Novolog versus Novolin)…. Whether contained in a bottle or in a pen, the premixed insulins all contain a combination of both an intermediate-acting insulin and a short-acting insulin. The numbers on the bottle or pen refer to the percentage of each type of insulin contained in the mixture. That means both Novolin 70/30 and Novolog 70/30 contain a mixture that is 70% intermediate-acting insulin with 30% short-acting insulin. However, Novolin 70/30 takes slightly longer to begin working than Novolog 70/30, which has a rapid onset. Both Novolin 70/30 and Novolog 70/30 may last up to 24 hours in the system. Novolin® 70/30 is not available in a pen. Novolin is the brand name given to all human insulins made by Novo Nordisk. Under this brand are specific types of insulin such as regular, nph, and 70/30. Novolog insulin is a synthetic recombinant insulin that is very rapid acting. You may often get this question because novolog is more expensive than any of the novolins. However, they cannot be substituted for each other. Two euglycemic clamp studies assessed glucose utilization after dosing of healthy volunteers. NovoLog Mix 70/30 has an earlier onset of action than human premix 70/30 in studies of n Continue reading >>

The Difference Between Novolin Vs Novolog

The Difference Between Novolin Vs Novolog

What is Novolin? Novolin is a man made insulin that is used to control high blood sugar in people with diabetes. Insulin is a naturally occurring hormone that is produced by the hormone to help glucose get absorbed by the body cells for energy. Without insulin, there will be a build up of glucose in the blood, which can lead to high blood sugar. If high blood sugar is left untreated, it can lead to severe health complications including nerve damage, kidney damage, blindness and loss of limbs. Novolin is usually a combination of insulin isophane and insulin regular, that uses proper diet and exercise to improve blood sugar levels in people with diabetes. Whereas insulin isophane is an intermediate acting insulin, insulin regular is a short acting insulin. When you take this combination of insulin it starts to work within 10 to 20 minutes after injecting it under your skin. The medication usually peaks after 2 hours and can last up to 24 hours. What is Novolog? Novolog refers to a fast acting insulin, which helps to control blood glucose levels in patients with type 2 diabetes. This insulin begins to work within 15 minutes after injection. Novolog usually peaks after one hour and the effects can last between 2 to 4 hours. Since Novolog is a very fast acting insulin, it is recommended you eat within 5 to 10 minutes after taking an injection. Similarities Both Novolin and Novolog refer to man made insulin that is taken by diabetic patients to help them control their blood sugar levels. Both medications are injectable insulins that are taken by injecting them subcutaneously. To avoid the risk of transferring infections from one person to another, you should not share an injection pen with anyone. Another similarity is that both medicines have a clear appearance. You should n Continue reading >>

Common Questions and Answers about Difference in novolog and novolin If it causes extreme highs or lows ( the same brittle condition you experienced with shots) then you would have some paperwork to plead your case to your insurance agency in an appeal.I would also suggest that you keep juice and glucagon handy at ALL times in case you find yourself having lows in between meals beause the regular insulin doesn't match your digestion time. And if you have a low, WIRITE it down in case you need to appeal to the insurance company. If you want an easy way to track carbs I can highly recommend the Food Tracker on this site. You can enter in what you eat and the amounts and it will give you carbs per day and carbs per meal (also calories, fat and protein). I am currently finding that I need to eat less than 30 g of carb for a meal in order to keep my blood sugars on target (less even at breakfast time).It is a complete new way of thinking and eating. not too many lows, we are soon transitioning to Lantus which I ve been told is better then novolog and novolin (or as I call them clear and cloudy) so we may see relief but I'm a single dad and I'm simply reachin out,Thanks, Copyright 1994-2018 MedHelp.
