What type of insulin is Humulin?

Humulin is an analog to human insulin produced naturally by the body. Active substance of this remedy – Neutral Protamine Hagedorn (NPH) insulin (also known as isophane insulin). The medication also includes protamine sulfate, glycerin, dibasic sodium phosphate, metacresol, phenol, zinc oxide, and water for solution.

Its main task is to help control blood glucose and help the body store it in the tissues, such as the liver, muscles, or fat. It also controls high blood sugar in people with diabetes.

What is the generic form of Humulin?

Humulin insulin is a brand-name drug, and generic forms of it do not exist.

Is Humulin fast-acting insulin?

The brand Humulin includes four various types of insulins, each with different speeds of results and working time length.

  • Humulin N is a type of intermediate-acting insulin (it starts working in 2-4 hours after the administration and keeps the effect up to 12-18 hours);
  • Humulin insulin Regular is short-acting insulin (the effect starts in 30 minutes and lasts up to 8 hours);
  • Humulin 50/50 and Humulin 70/30 contain both short- and long-lasting insulin. That means that they start acting in 10-20 minutes and remain active up to 24 hours.

Is Humulin R the same as regular insulin?

Humulin R insulin is a copy of the insulin produced naturally in the body. It is exactly like the one that can be found in the body – it moves glucose away from the bloodstream into the cells.

When should Humulin be taken?

Prescribed units of insulin should be taken once or twice a day (according to the doctor’s instructions) 15 minutes before or after the meal. Some patients may also take it before going to bed. Try to use the medication at the same time every day to form the habit in the body.

How long does Humulin last in the body?

Depending on the type of Humulin, it may last from two to twenty-four hours in the human body. That is why the dose has to be injected every day in order to keep the results.

Please note that the same needles or syringes cannot be shared by various people, as well as the same cartridges, kwikpens, or vials. It may lead to life-threatening diseases.

What are the side effects of Humulin insulin?

While using Humulin insulin, several side effects may appear. They are not dangerous and should be gone without the doctor’s help:

  • Various injection site reactions (redness, increased sensitivity in the places of injection, skin irritation, etc.);
  • Nausea;
  • Insignificant weight gain;
  • Bloating;
  • Headache.

Serious side effects that have to be reported to the doctor immediately after noticing them include:

  • Any symptoms of low blood sugar (hypoglycemia);
  • Unusual weakness;
  • Irregular heartbeat;
  • Muscle cramps;
  • Blurred vision.

The signs mentioned above can be symptoms of heart failure as well, that is why it is crucial to call your doctor for medical advice, diagnosis, or treatment right away.

In case of hypoglycemia (which is the most common side effect), it is recommended to have a quick sugar source with you. It may be a snack (honey, a tablespoon of sugar, candies, etc.) or a sugary drink (non-diet soda or juice). It is also recommended to carry glucose pills with you in case low blood sugar episodes happen unexpectedly. On some occasions, these methods are no effective enough to deal with this problem. In this case, the help of the specialist is required in order to get a glucagon injection. It is better to contact your health care provider as soon as possible because severe hypoglycemia may lead to loss of consciousness and, in very rare cases, death.
