The Humalog Mix 25 Kwikpens (100IU/ml) is an insulin pen that contains a combination of two medications, insulin lispro (25%), which has a fast onset of action, and insulin lispro protamine (75%) that has a prolonged duration of action. Together, these two medicines ensure consistent and rapid sugar control throughout the day by facilitating the re-up take of sugar in muscle and fat cells and suppressing sugar production in the liver.
Insulin should be part of your diabetes treatment program advised by a doctor, combined with a healthy diet, exercise, and weight reduction.
The Humalog Mix25 KwikPen is usually prescribed alongside a long-acting type of insulin by doctors. It effectively manages blood sugar levels for type 1 and types two diabetes to avoid diabetes-related complications.
Humalog also makes different variations of the KwikPen, including the 100 units, 200 units, and the Junior Pen. They come in different mixtures including Mix50.
