Each Humalog KwikPen 100 Units delivers 1–60 units in increments of 1 unit. This disposable single-patient-use prefilled insulin pen contains a total of 300 units of Humalog. Users can administer multiple doses. The dial allows you to give yourself from 1 to 60 units of insulin from a single injection. Each turn of the knob will click and deliver a single unit. You can reload this pen with Humalog 100 Unit cartridges.
Humalog is fast-acting insulin used to control blood glucose levels, specifically blood sugar spikes that may happen naturally with meals. This rapid-acting insulin works quicker than human insulin in the body as the insulin molecule has been changed slightly. It works very quickly, and its duration is shorter than soluble insulin (2 to 5 hours). Humalog easily gets confused with Humulin but they both differ from one another.
Humalog is now available through the Humalog U-100 KwikPen that is easy to use and portable. You can take it anywhere since it doesn’t have to be refrigerated after first use. Humalog KwikPen is an insulin pen that contains insulin lispro, which is used to treat diabetes. Humalog does provide their insulin through vials as well.
Each dosage is displayed in a window by the movement of a dial. The dial moves slightly after using the pen, which may sometimes go unnoticed. It will reach the end of the cartridge when all 300 units have been used.
Before using Humalog KwikPen, be sure to read all information from your leaflet carefully and follow instructions as provided by your doctor or pharmacist.
Humalog KwikPens is also available in 200 units.
