The Levemir FlexTouch Pen is an insulin pen that contains insulin detemir as its active ingredient.
Levemir is a solution for subcutaneous use. Insulin detemir is a long-acting recombinant human insulin analog. Levemir is produced by a process that includes expression of recombinant DNA in Saccharomyces cerevisiae followed by chemical modification. Insulin detemir differs from human insulin in that the amino acid threonine in position B30 has been omitted, and a C14 fatty acid chain has been attached to the amino acid B29.
Levemir is not meant to treat insulin ketoacidosis. Do not take Levemir FlexTouch if you have an allergy to any of the ingredients contained in Levemir.
Levemir is also available in Penfill cartridges. Ensure you are ordering the correct FlexTouch, as they are available by many brands including: Fiasp, Tresiba and NovoLog.
