How does this medication work?

Insulin is a hormone produced by the pancreas, an organ in our body, that helps regulate glucose (sugar) levels from the food we eat. For those with diabetes, their body may not produce enough insulin or use it efficiently. Since insulin cannot be stored or used properly, it accumulates in the bloodstream.

As a result, those with diabetes are prescribed insulin by their doctor which is injected under the skin (subcutaneously) to help manage their glucose levels.

There are several types of insulin that are absorbed at different rates and vary on their duration.

Novolin ge 50/50 is a premixed insulin that combines an intermediate acting insulin (insulin NPH) with a fast-acting insulin (insulin regular). Patients find using the ratio with this premixed insulin to work best for them.

This premixed insulin starts working after 30-60 minutes after injection and has a maximum effect between 2-8 hours and lasts up to 18 hours.

A physician may have prescribed this medication for reasons not discussed here. If you are unsure why you were prescribed this medication, consult with your doctor. Do not stop taking your medication unless instructed by your doctor.

Insulin medication should not be shared with anyone else even if they share similar symptoms. This medication can be harmful for those who have not received a prescription from their doctor.
