Fiasp® 100IU/ml Solution for Injection is used for blood sugar control in people with type 1 and type 2 diabetes. It helps lower blood sugar level after meals and further reduces the chance of developing any diabetes complications which include kidney damage, nerve problems, loss of limbs or eye damage.

Your doctor may prescribe Fiasp® 100IU/ml Solution for Injection to be used with a long-acting type of insulin or other medications for diabetes.

Fiasp® (insulin aspart) vials is a fast-acting type of insulin that closely matches the natural physiological insulin produced after a meal by a person who doesn’t have diabetes. To increase the speed of absorption, Fiasp® has included Vitamin B3 (niacinamide) and for stability, L-Argenine which is a natural amino acid.

Unlike other common brands of insulin, Fiasp® has a more flexible dosing regimen that allows you to inject up to 2 minutes prior to starting a meal or up to 20 minutes after starting a meal without compromising your overall safety and glycemic control.

In order to reduce the progression of diabetes related complications, Diabetes Canada recommends achieving optimal glycemic control.

Fiap insulin absorbs twice as fast when compared to NovoRapid (NovoLog), a conventional insulin aspart, after injection before achieving glycemic control after a meal.

Uses

Your physician or nurse will instruct you on how to properly inject it subcutaneously (under the skin).
