Levemir Penfill cartridges are designed to be used with Novo Nordisk insulin delivery systems and NovoFine or NovoTwist needles.
If you are treated with Levemir Penfill and another insulin Penfill cartridge, you should use two insulin delivery systems, one for each type of insulin.
The Levemir PenFill Cartridge contains insulin detemir, a modern analog used to treat blood glucose levels in children (age one year and above), adolescents, and adults with diabetes.
Levemir is a long-acting insulin that provides a long and steady glucose-lowering action that begins 3-4 hours after injection and lasts up to 24 hours.
Levemir can also be used with rapid-acting insulin, other diabetes products such as tablets, and anti-diabetic effects.
Ensure you are ordering the correct cartridge, as insulin can easily get mistaken amongst the different types of cartridges on the market.
Levemir is also available through KwikPens.
