Dosage and Rules of Administration
The dose of the drug Humalog is determined by the doctor individually, depending on the concentration of blood glucose. The mode of lispro protamine insulin administration is individual.
Humalog can be administered immediately before a meal. If necessary, Humalog can be used after a meal. The drug should be administered only subcutaneously. Intravenous administration of Humalog is inadmissible.
Before you take Humalog injection, the drug should be at room temperature. Subcutaneous injections should be given to the shoulder, thigh, buttocks, or abdomen. The injection sites must be alternated so that the same site is used no more than about once a month. With subcutaneous administration of Humalog, care should be taken to avoid getting the drug into the lumen of blood vessels. After injection, do not massage the injection site.
Before injecting insulin, you must read the QuickPen Syringe Pen instructions for use.
An overdose of Humalog insulin lispro causes hypoglycemia (low blood sugar), accompanied by the following symptoms: lethargy, excessive sweating, tachycardia, pallor of the skin, headache, trembling, vomiting, confusion. Under certain conditions, for example, with a long duration of the disease or with the intensive control of diabetes mellitus, the symptoms of hypoglycemia may change.
Mild conditions of hypoglycemia can usually be controlled by ingestion of glucose or sugar. Adjustments to your insulin dose, diet, or physical activity may be required. Correction of moderate hypoglycemia can be carried out using intramuscular or subcutaneous administration of glucagon, followed by ingestion of carbohydrates. Severe hypoglycemic conditions accompanied by coma, seizures, or neurological disorders are relieved by intramuscular/subcutaneous administration of glucagon or by intravenous administration of concentrated dextrose (glucose) solution.
