Humalog Junior KwikPens offers the combined benefits of rapid-acting insulin in a prefilled disposable pen and half-unit dosing to help control your child’s diabetes.
It differs from the Humalog KwikPen since it offers half-unit increments, plus it shouldn’t be refrigerated after first use. Due to its size, it can be carried anywhere for application.
Humalog Junior KwikPens (insulin lispro injection 100 units/mL) are the only prefilled, disposable half-unit insulin pen used to treat those with type 1 and type 2 diabetes.
For children and their caregivers, learning how to inject insulin can be challenging and overwhelming. With the Humalog Junior KwikPen, there are fewer steps involved during the injection process since it’s prefilled and the half-unit increments make dosing more precise.
In the past, delivering a half unit of insulin could only be done through reusable pens that required removing and loading cartridges. With the Humalog Junior KwikPen, this can be easily accomplished through its ability to administer fine-tuned dosing.
Humalog also has KwikPens in Mix 25, Mix 50 and 200 units. They also produce their formula in vials, where the patient can inject themselves using syringes.
Humalog Junior KwikPens are designed to be shorter and lighter than other prefilled half-unit insulin pens. The International Organization has approved its design of Standardization.
Humalog Junior KwikPen offers half-unit increments ideal for those with insulin sensitivity and older adults who require precision when applying their insulin injection and need to round to the nearest whole unit.
Ensure you are correcting the correct insulin, as Humulin and Humalog frequently get mixed up with one another by many customers.
Users can apply finer dose adjustments (0.5 vs. 1 unit dose increments) for people with diabetes who typically require small doses (?30 units) during mealtime of Humalog U-100 (insulin lispro injection 100 units/mL).
