What Is Rapid Or Fast-acting Insulin?

You may take rapid acting or fast acting insulin (also known as insulin analogues) for your diabetes, either through injections prior to your meals, or in your insulin pump. You may use it alone, or in combination with other insulins and diabetes medications, including injections and pills. In a person without diabetes, the pancreas puts out small amounts of insulin, continuously bringing down blood sugars to a normal level with no difficulty. When a person has diabetes, they may not make any insulin, as occurs in Type 1 Diabetes. They may make some insulin, but it’s not working well, and it’s just not enough to bring blood sugars into a normal range, as occurs in Type 2 Diabetes. When there is no insulin, or not enough insulin, the goal is to try to simulate what the body normally does to bring down blood sugars through injections of insulin, inhaled insulin, or via an insulin pump. To do this, rapid or fast acting insulin must be taken in relation to food that is eaten in many cases. Not everyone with diabetes must take insulin to control their blood sugars, though. Let’s learn how Christie uses rapid acting insulin… Christie’s story Christie has had Type 1 Diabetes for Continue reading >>

    A friend of mines son has Diabetes and as such has to travel with his meds in his carry on. They will be going to Scotland in August and Im wondering what is the best and legitimate way to keep the Insulin cool for the flights.
    I have heard of everything from bags of ice that will melt enroute to the permanent Ice packs. Just wondering what others do that travel regularly with meds that have to be kept cold. Bear in mind that they also have to keep approximately 2 weeks worth cool so that they have enough while on their holiday.
    Thanks

    Why not ask the FA to keep it in the fridge in the galley?

    I work in a hospital. The Pharmacy suppiles our insulins to the medication refrigerator, but the bottles are labelled good for 28 days when stored at room temp; the CPS agrees (even for insulin glargine [Lantus] which we used to keep cool at all times).
    Your friend should double check with her Pharmacist, but I suspect that the insulin should be fine if not kept in a fridge whilst on board the plane.

Novo Nordisk’s Ultra-fast Rapid-acting Insulin Fiasp Approved In Europe And Canada

Novo Nordisk has announced that their ultra-fast rapid-acting insulin aspart called Fiasp has been approved by the European Commission, covering all 28 European Union member states. According to a GlobeNewswire press release, Fiasp is a new-generation mealtime insulin that works faster and more like the natural physiological insulin response to meals. It has a similar safety profile to Novolog insulin in the US and NovoRapid in the UK and is approved for the treatment of diabetes in adults with type 1 or 2 diabetes as well as for use in insulin pumps. About Ultra-Fast Fiasp Insulin Fiasp is a faster formulation of insulin aspart (Novolog/NovoRapid). It is able to provide “earlier, greater and faster absorption, thereby providing earlier insulin action.” The executive vice president and chief science officer of Novo Nordisk, Mads Krogsgaard said in the press release that, “The incremental benefits with Fiasp® are comparable to those observed for the last generation of mealtime insulins when introduced more than a decade ago.” Krogsgaard is referring to how faster insulin analogs were introduced a little over a decade ago and we saw a great improvement in blood sugar managem Continue reading >>

    I'm looking into getting one. Anyone have experience with it?
    We usually test every 1/2 hour when at the pool, but I always flip out about any missing basal and stuff, and worry about possible ketones, so maybe something like this would work
    There is info. at the bottom about reduced insulin flow. So, not sure if it's worth it or not.
    Plus, I think it's expensive.
    Thanks for any input.
    Here's the link, btw, so you know what I'm talking about:

Types of Sleep Apnea. Please visit http://www.ApneaTreatmentCenter.com for free, in-depth information on easy sleep apnea treatments that you can do at home. In this video I describe the 3 major types of sleep apnea, along with their causes. Sleep apnea is a sleep disorder that affects breathing during sleep. It results in frequent stoppages in breathing and can be potentially hazardous if left untreated. The term 'apnea' is of Greek origin meaning 'without breath'. The breathing distress associated with this condition is due to stoppage or slowing down of airflow. This happens when the respiratory tract is blocked, narrowed or has become floppy. "Obstructive", "central", and "complex" are the three types of apnea, of which obstructive sleep apnea is most prevalent. More than 50% of patients diagnosed with apnea suffer from this type.

Types Of Insulin

Insulin analogs are now replacing human insulin in the US. Insulins are categorized by differences in onset, peak, duration, concentration, and route of delivery. Human Insulin and Insulin Analogs are available for insulin replacement therapy. Insulins also are classified by the timing of their action in your body – specifically, how quickly they start to act, when they have a maximal effect and how long they act.Insulin analogs have been developed because human insulins have limitations when injected under the skin. In high concentrations, such as in a vial or cartridge, human (and also animal insulin) clumps together. This clumping causes slow and unpredictable absorption from the subcutaneous tissue and a dose-dependent duration of action (i.e. the larger dose, the longer the effect or duration). In contrast, insulin analogs have a more predictable duration of action. The rapid acting insulin analogs work more quickly, and the long acting insulin analogs last longer and have a more even, “peakless” effect. Background Insulin has been available since 1925. It was initially extracted from beef and pork pancreases. In the early 1980’s, technology became available to produce Continue reading >>

    Any doctors, nurses or pharmacists out there, PLEASE!!!
    I have had type 2 diabetes very well controlled by diet alone for almost 6 years with my A1C ranging always between 5.2 and 5.6.
    I had a severe asthma attack and have been on and will have to stay on for another week a large dose of Prednisone. I had been getting it IV at the hospital as an inpatient for the past week and now have to continue with a tapering off amount for another week.
    My blood sugar has gone quite high because of the prednisone. I was instructed to take regular insulin for this week whenever my sugar goes higher than 200.
    I had no insulin in the house, never used it before. I got a prescription at the hospital and picked up a bottle of Novolog. The pharmacy is now closed. I went to use it and I see on the box that it expired September 2013. Again, this is regular, not long lasting insulin. I called the hospital and they said they can’t tell me to use expired insulin or to just skip it, one way or the other. I have no private doctor. I don’t know if I should take it or skip it until tomorrow when I can call the pharmacist. My sugar is 257.

    What the h#ll is the hospital doing selling expired medicine? Don't let that one go, OP. Is there a medical helpline in your area that you could phone?

  3. —Anonymous

    Insulin will just become less and less effective over time and with exposure to light and heat.
    It won't harm you, it just might not do much.
