Novolin NPH Penfill Cartridges (GE) contains an insulin isophane, a human biosynthetic substance that closely resembles the insulin produced by the pancreas in our body.
The main difference between this insulin and natural insulin is that it has a longer duration of action. Insulin is a hormone usually produced by your pancreas, which is a large organ near your stomach. It is chiefly responsible for food metabolism, helping your body use and stores the sugar that your body creates by processing food. If you have diabetes, either your pancreas does not make sufficient insulin, or your body can not use the insulin that it does make properly. Because sugar can not be adequately stored or used up, it builds up in your bloodstream, causing high blood sugar levels.
It is produced using recombinant DNA methods using S. cerevisiae (baker’s yeast) and then unique purification processes.
Novolin NPH PenFill Cartridges (GE) is used with your reusable insulin pen to control high sugar levels in the treatment of diabetes. It is intermediate-acting insulin, administered subcutaneously (under the skin). It is commonly used together with fast-acting mealtime insulin to protect you against blood sugar spikes during and after eating. Novolin also delivers their NPH formula through insulin vials.
These cartridges work with your reusable insulin pen to deliver Novolin GE NPH insulin, which works similarly to the way naturally occurring human insulin does.
Novolin is prescribed by doctors for patients with diabetes mellitus to manage blood glucose levels to control high blood sugar (hyperglycemia). It is an antidiabetic agent used as a diabetes treatment to reduce sugar levels in the blood and urine.
Novolin NPH PenFill Cartridges (GE) is an intermediate-acting insulin that is commonly combined with short-acting insulin. It begins taking effect within 30 minutes of injection and can last for approximately 24 hours. It is a cloudy suspension with protamine and zinc. NPH insulin should be prescribed to you after a thorough assessment by a healthcare professional.
The none-medicinal ingredients in the cartridge include glycerol, phenol, sodium hydroxide, disodium phosphate dihydrate, hydrochloric acid, protamine sulfate, zinc chloride, metacresol, and water for injections.
