    Diabetes, Type 2 - what will happen if you take levemir with novolog 70/30?

    I was prescribed these two insulins by a new doctor but all of the research I have done says that you're not supposed to take novolog 70/30 with any other insulin... so I am wondering what will happen with this rx?

  2. KA kaismama

    That's one I never heard. There is often other types of insulin given. If your new dr is an endocrinologist (which it should be) then you can trust him. They are the specialists in diabetes.

    It is Very common for both to be prescribed together.
    The Levimeir is a long acting insulin that you take once every day & last 24 hours.
    Apparently your blood sugars have been running high.
    They prescribe the Novolog as a short acting insulin to prevent sugar spikes when you eat.
    You need to make sure to inject within 10-15 minutes BEFORE you eat. It is important though to take the shot Before eating or it will not work properly.

    Does anyone give these at the same time in the same syringe? I've read two books on using insulin and they both say that Levemir can be mixed with a short acting insulin. However, Novo Nordisk website says not to mix it. I was just wondering if anyone had heard this and if it is possible. One less injection a day would be great!
    Thanks for any replies.

    To make a short story long,
    Just for clarification, when Levemir, NPH, and Novalog were mixed, we saw
    a mid morning spike, though she was back in range by noon. So mixing the Levemir with the others appeared to delay the action of the Novalog (as the Levemir's information package says it will - go figure - note it didn't seem to at first, but at first our proportions were much smaller).
    To test this theory, the Levemir was admisitered in its own syringe, and the NPH and Novolog in another. By doing this the mid morning spike disappeared.
    Then DD said - that is too many needles!!! So we switched to Lantus to deliver the basal in one shot a day, instead of the two a day that the Levemir was coming in.

    this thread. I never even tried to mix Levemir with anything - didn't want to take the chance.

    Thanks for any replies. If your child is still honeymooning you might get away with mixing the Levemir with Novolog. But over time it will go progressively less well.
    Problem is, the Levemir slows the action of the Novolog and (post honeymoon) this will cause BG spikes after the meal at which you gave the mixture. You can give it a try, but be sure to measure BG every hour after the meal for a few days to see what is happening. And be aware that even if it works now it won't in the longer term..

In the first episode of this season We're looking at basic mixing theory : What is mixing, and what do we want to achieve with a mix? This highly visual episode will explain the basic theory of making a simple mix and will help you 'visualize' your mix a lot better. In this first episode we don't really look at what we will be physically performing behind our mixing console, but mainly at the concept of what we will be creating. From episode 2 on we will be diving into mixing consoles, channelstrips and their functions to understand the signalflow. From there on we will be going into some basic mixing sessions and grow into more advanced types of mixes.

Mixing Levemir Or Lantus With Humalog

D.D. Family Type-3c/1b, Dx 79 On MDI, CKD-3, SA type-3c (Pancreatitis) on MDI, CKD-3, RRMS, Multiple Sclerosis w/bilateral stage-3 Meniere's mimic, Psoriasis, Thyroid, AFIB, Rheumatic Fever Heart disease, More than 10 long standing Dawson's Fingers (MS pot-holes) in brain, spinal lesions, spinal stenosis and carpel tunnel. Well, theoretically, Lantus changes consistency at higher pH levels, becoming thicker, which can interfere with the absorption of both insulins. Like many theories, however, this one is at odds with reality. I've mixed Lantus with Humalog and with Regular, and all insulins acted as they would if they were injected separately. ... Changing consistency is not important. The mix (Lantus) certainly precipitates (which is important as chemically it is changed) when mixed but from my use after mixing I agree with you that it's as if it wasn't mixed. I stopped mixing anyway. (Perhaps the precipitation works similar to the unmixed binding to cells after injecting, or perhaps mixed Lantus binds to cells and the other insulin, or re-precipitates as it should (un-mixed) after injecting.) There is a good Sept, 2012 post by Brian (bsc) here about the action of lantus with ot Continue reading >>

    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!
