Get your Insulin Aspart - the generic version of Novalog – through US MED. Insulin Aspart is a rapid acting human insulin analog used to treat people living with Type 1 and Type 2 diabetes for the control of high blood sugar.
Insulin Aspart, brand name NovoLog, releases a hormone called insulin into the body to lower glucose (sugar) levels in the blood. It acts like the insulin that your body naturally produces to keep your blood sugar levels normal after eating meals.
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 to help you manage your diabetes effectively and keep your blood sugar levels in check, ask your doctor about Humalog today.
We offer Humalog 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 also offer insulin to pump patients whose supplies are being billed to their Medicare Part D benefit.
