Expert advice FOR INSULATARD

  • Avoid consuming alcohol as it may increase the chance of severe low blood sugar. 
  • Notify your doctor if you have any signs of troubled-breathing or rashes (severe and life-threatening allergy).
     
     
     
  • Type 2 diabetes can be controlled with a proper diet alone or a diet along with exercise. Planned diet and exercising are always important when you have diabetes, even when you are taking antidiabetic medicines.

    • Exercising more than usual. 
    • Drinking a significant amount of alcohol.
    • Using too much insulin.
    • Sickness (vomiting or diarrhea).

Consuming some form of quick-acting sugars immediately after the appearance of the symptoms will prevent the low blood sugar levels from worsening. 

Frequently asked questions FOR INSULATARD

Insulin Isophane (NPH)

Q. How does biphasic isophane insulin work?
Insulin isophane is a recombinant human insulin analogue (genetically modified insulin that is grown in a laboratory and similar to human insulin). It is an intermediate acting insulin preparation. Insulin isophane acts by replacing the normal production of insulin and by helping transfer sugar from the blood into other body tissues where it is utilized to generate energy. It also stops the liver from producing more sugar. Intermediate acting insulin preparations start acting within an hour or 2 of injection, and reach a period of peak activity that lasts up to 7 hours, following which the action trails off; overall duration of action ranges from 18 to 24 hours.
