LEVEMIR VIALS (INSULIN DETEMIR)

Levemir Vials Description

Levemir vials containing Insulin Detemir may be prescribed if you are a type 1 or 2 diabetic to help regulate your blood glucose so it does not become too high and pose additional health risks. Levemir vials provide long-lasting control that may be recommended once-daily or divided with one dose in the morning and a night time injection. A second diabetes medication may be prescribed that works quickly to take care of sugar spikes that can occur after a meal. Your doctor will decide on the best plan of action that fits your lifestyle.

Your doctor or a diabetic specialist will make certain that you are instructed on how to properly use a syringe to draw up the insulin and inject it into your skin. Insulin cannot be taken as an oral treatment to lower your blood sugar due to stomach enzymes that interfere with its actions, but there are other diabetic medications that can be taken by mouth to help control this condition. When you administer the prescribed dose from the Levemir vials, the insulin helps transport the sugar circulating in your bloodstream to your cells. It will be stored here for energy or fuel until you need it. This will prevent the sugar from building up in your bloodstream that can cause fatigue, headaches, frequent urination, and blurry vision.

Conditions Treated by Levemir Vials

It is believed that type 1 diabetes is an autoimmune disease that causes your immune system to attack and destroy the beta cells in your pancreas. The beta cells are responsible for producing insulin, but as their numbers dwindle, your blood glucose level starts rising until you begin to notice the symptoms associated with diabetes. Glucose is your main source of energy unless it is left to circulate in your bloodstream or in fluid that surrounds your body’s cells. Insulin is the key to opening up the cells so the glucose can be stored. If you have type 2 diabetes, you are still able to benefit from how your body uses the insulin your pancreas produces, but there will come a time when your insulin production stops and you will need Levemir vials to help your body keep a constant level of glucose.

Before You Administer Levemir Vials

Ask your doctor if the benefits of insulin from Levemir vials are considered to outweigh the risks of hyperglycemia while you are pregnant or may become pregnant. Discuss other medical conditions and allergies you have and list any OTC and Rx drugs you take, including herbal and vitamin supplements so it can be determined if Levemir vials are right for you.

Warnings for Levemir Vials

Make sure you understand how to measure and inject insulin and where the injections should be given. Ask your doctor or pharmacist where the used needles and syringes should be disposed of after use. Do not share or reuse any syringes or needles with anyone, regardless of whether that person is also a diabetic.
