HUMALOG INSULIN CARTRIDGES (INSULIN)

Humalog Insulin Cartridges Description

Humalog Insulin Cartridges are designed to be used in the HumaPen LUXURA HD as a convenient way to administer insulin for those with type 1 diabetes and for type 2 diabetics that require more insulin than oral medications can supply. The insulin lispro solution contained in the Humalog Insulin Cartridges is a synthetic version of human insulin that will either take the place of the insulin your pancreas no longer produces for type 1 diabetics or supplement the decreased insulin production for those with type 2 diabetes. If you are unfamiliar with how Humalog Insulin Cartridges are loaded into the HumaPen LUXURA HD, a healthcare professional can instruct you or you may be referred to a diabetic specialist.

Insulin lispro is usually recommended as a “meal-time” insulin to be administered within 15 minutes before eating a meal or immediately following a meal. This fast-acting insulin will quickly help move the sugar from your blood and into other body tissues where it is stored and used later for energy. The duration of the activity of insulin lispro from the Humalog Insulin Cartridges is just under five hours.

Conditions Treated by Humalog Insulin Cartridges

Insulin is a hormone that is produced by your pancreas in accordance to the amount of sugar or glucose that is circulating in your bloodstream after eating a meal. Without insulin to remove the excess sugar from your blood, it will start building up in tissues, including the kidneys, eyes, heart, and around nerve endings. This can result in serious short and long-term complications if this is left for any length of time without treatment.

Some people with type 2 diabetes may be able to postpone the need for insulin or other diabetic meds by exercising to stay active and lose weight, eating a healthy diet, making sure your blood pressure and cholesterol are under control, and kicking the smoking habit. Not only will this decrease your risk of diabetes, it will also help protect you against cardiovascular disease and a number of cancers.

Before You Use Humalog Insulin Cartridges

Discuss the use of insulin with your doctor if you are pregnant, may become pregnant, or are breast feeding. Tell your doctor about other medical conditions or allergies you have and list any current OTC or Rx drugs you take, including herbal remedies and vitamin or dietary supplements so it can be determined if Humalog Insulin Cartridges will be helpful for your situation.

Humalog Insulin Cartridges Precautions

Be certain that you know how to insert the cartridges into the pen device so there is no waste or loss of insulin. Follow instructions for storing unopened Humalog Insulin Cartridges and the pen devices with opened cartridges. Never throw the spent Humalog Insulin Cartridges away with regular garbage unless your doctor or pharmacist confirms this is okay. Ask your pharmacist for a ‘sharps’ container for the used needles after injecting the insulin.
