Levemir Side Effects Center

Levemir (insulin detemir [rDNA origin] injection) is a man-made form of a hormone that is produced in the body used to treat diabetes in adults and children. Common side effects of Levemir include: injection site reactions (e.g., pain, redness, irritation), swelling of the hands/feet, thickening of the skin where you inject Levemir, weight gain, headache, back pain, stomach pain, flu symptoms, or cold symptoms such as stuffy nose, sneezing, sore throat. Tell your doctor if you experience serious side effects of Levemir including: signs of low potassium level in the blood (such as muscle cramps, weakness, or irregular heartbeat). Levemir is for once- or twice-daily subcutaneous (under the skin) administration. Patients treated with Levemir once-daily should administer the dose with the evening meal or at bedtime. Patients requiring twice-daily dosing can administer the evening dose with the evening meal, at bedtime, or 12 hours after the morning dose. Levemir may interact with albuterol, clonidine, reserpine, guanethidine, or beta-blockers. Other medicines can increase or decrease the effects of insulin Levemir on lowering your blood sugar. Tell your doctor all prescription and over 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!

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.)

    I am supposed to take the Levemir twice a day- once when I get up & once at bedtime.

    Does that mean in the morning I take the Levemir & then can take the Novolog immediately after?
    I know I am supposed to eat soon after taking the Novolog. Just wanting to be sure I have it right.

    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.

Can You Mix Levimir With Humalog In One Syringe ?

Can you Mix Levimir with Humalog in one syringe ? 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. Can you Mix Levimir with Humalog in one syringe ? According to Gary Scheiner " Think Like a Pancreas " (2004 edition) Detimir ( Levemir ) can be mixed with a fast acting insulin. However most other sources state that you can not mix them. Has anyone tried mixing Levemir and Humalog with success ? You can't mix them in the same syringe. What Scheiner means is you can take them at the same time - you just do two injections in different parts of your body. I'd defer to the manufacturers with this, who state explicitly not to mix. AFAIK mixing won't make the world explode but studies suggest it may change the profile of one or both, an x factor you could do without. " Lantus must be given in it's own syring (it can not be mixed with other insulins, meaning that a lot of injections will be necessary. Detemir may be mixed with fast acting insulin." I'm pretty sure that means that Scheiner is saying mixing in the same syringe. ( Not 2 injections in different par Continue reading >>
