How Apidra SoloStar 100IU/ml Injectable Pens work

The Apidra Solostar 100IU/ml injectable pen is a rapid acting insulin that begins working 10 to 20 minutes after application. Similar to insulin produced in the body as it allows glucose into fat cells and muscles to produce energy in addition to blocking glucose release from the liver.

The Apidra Solostar 100IU/ml injectable pen is used to improve blood sugar levels in those with type 1 and type 2 diabetes. This fast-acting insulin effectively lowers blood sugar levels after mealtime and can greatly reduce the chances of developing serious diabetes conditions.

This medication is typically prescribed with long-acting type insulin medications or other diabetes medications. Your nurse or doctor will demonstrate the correct way to inject this insulin subcutaneously (under the skin). Part of your diabetes regimen should include regular exercise, healthy diet and weight loss.

Track your blood sugar levels regularly and be sure to share them with your doctor so they can adjust your dosage accordingly.
