Humalog Insulin Lispro

Humalog - Insulin Lispro

Managing your blood sugar levels is a delicate balancing act. And when it comes to mealtime insulin, you want a treatment that is both effective and fast-acting. That's where Humalog comes in.

Humalog is a fast-acting mealtime insulin that starts working in as little as 15 minutes after injection. And because it has a shorter duration of action than regular human insulin, it's perfect for treating the sudden spikes in blood sugar that can occur after meals.

If you're looking for an insulin treatment that can help you manage your diabetes effectively and keep your blood sugar levels in check, ask your doctor about Insulin Lispro today.

Benefits of using rapid-acting insulin

Per the Cleveland Clinic, the main benefit is that your body maintains appropriate blood glucose levels. This may help you avoid complications of diabetes, which include:

  • Eye problems
  • Gum disease
  • Heart attack
  • Kidney failure
  • Nerve damage (neuropathic pain)
  • Stroke
Humalog Insulin Lispro is a great way to help Medicare patients who are on an insulin pump and pump supplies are being billed to their Medicare Part B benefit. This coverage was designed by Medicare to provide affordable insulin rates for patients on insulin pumps. We provide Humalog throughout the continental U.S. and will connect with your doctor to ensure insulin lispro is right for you.
Children younger than 3 years old should not be given Insulin lispro. Insulin lispro should not be used to treat type 2 diabetes in a child of any age.
This medicine is available only with your doctor's prescription.
