Novomix 30 Penfill

Novomix 30 Penfill is a biphasic suspension for injection in a cartridge containing 30% soluble insulin Aspart and 70% insulin Aspart protamine in a crystallized form. Novamix 30 penfill is indicated for treating diabetes mellitus in adults or children aged ten years or over. The soluble form of insulin Aspart has a fast onset of action, while the crystallized form has a prolonged duration of action. This medication helps maintain a constant blood sugar level throughout the day. Novomix replaces insulin and mimics the insulin meant to be produced by the pancreas in those with diabetes.

Diabetes mellitus is a medical condition affecting the way your body processes glucose. There are two types of diabetes mellitus:

Type 1: This type of diabetes is also known as juvenile diabetes or insulin-dependent diabetes. This usually develops in children, young adults, or teens but can also happen at any age. This is considered a chronic condition and happens through an autoimmune reaction where the cells in the pancreas stop producing insulin. Insulin is essential to allow glucose to enter the cell and produce energy. Without insulin production, sugar will not be able to enter the cell and build up in the blood. This build-up can cause many symptoms and complications brought about by uncontrolled diabetes. Signs of type 1 diabetes include increased thirst and hunger, increased frequency of urination, unintended weight loss, irritability, and bed-wetting in children who did not wet their bed before.

Type 2: Type 2 diabetes is caused by two interrelated issues. Cells in type 2 diabetes do not respond to insulin as they should. This is known as insulin resistance since the pancreas does produce insulin and tries to get cells to respond. When this happens, your pancreas will eventually find it hard to keep up with the demand, leading to the prediabetic stage followed by type 2 diabetes. This causes high blood sugar levels that can cause damage to the body, including heart disease, vision problems, and kidney disorders. Type 2 diabetes develops with time and can go years unnoticed. This type is more common in older adults but can still occur in children or adults.

Managing blood glucose levels is a crucial part of managing your diabetes. With a controlled blood sugar level, you decrease your risk of developing kidney disease, eye disorders, nerve damage or loss of limbs, complicated wound healing, and diabetic foot ulcer complications. In addition, when accompanied by an active lifestyle and a healthy diet, this medication can help you lead
