Frequently Asked Questions

Fast-acting insulin, also known as mealtime or rapid insulin, works quickly to help control your blood sugar levels. They typically start to work 15 - 20 minutes after you take it and can last between 3 to 5 hours. On average they peak within 1 - 2 hours. This type of insulin is commonly used in insulin pumps. Fast Acting Insulin should be taken shortly before or right after eating. 

Long-acting insulin is absorbed slowly, helping to stabilize your blood sugar levels throughout the day. They typically start working within 2-4 hours after taking them and can last up to 24 hours. Long-acting insulin is usually taken once per day.
