This manufactured insulin is safe and effective in treating both adults and children over the age of 3, whether Humalog is safe and effective for type 1 diabetes under three or children with type 2 diabetes.
Humalog is a substitute for human insulin and is used to control glucose levels. Since the molecules in this insulin have been modified, it works faster than regular human insulin.
It increases the rate at which the body converts glucose to glycogen stored in the muscle to be later used as energy.
The other ingredients in Humalog vials are glycerol, m-cresol, zinc oxide, dibasic sodium phosphate 7 H2O, and water for injection. Hydrochloric acid or sodium hydroxide may have been used to adjust the acidity.
Ensure you are ordering the proper dosage, as Humalog has a wide arrange of selection. Also ensure you are ordering the proper insulin, as Humalog and Humulin can easily be confused with one another.
