NOVOLOG INSULIN VIALS (INSULIN)
Novolog Insulin Vials contain Insulin aspart, an injectible synthetic drug prescribed to help control blood sugar levels in adults and children at least two years of age that have type 1 diabetes and adults with type 2 diabetes.
This is fast-acting insulin that is absorbed quickly in order to control sugar spikes that occur after a meal.
Once you have injected the insulin, you should eat your meal within 5-10 minutes. The insulin then helps to transport the sugar that’s circulating in your bloodstream from the food you have eaten into your cells and is stored there to use as fuel. Without the help of Novolog Insulin Vials, the sugar would remain in your bloodstream and your cells would lack the fuel you need for energy so your body would start using muscle and fat for a source of fuel.
This makes it impossible to control your blood glucose levels without the help of injectible insulin. Type 2 diabetes, which is the most common form of diabetes, occurs as your body become more and more resistant to insulin. Nobody is quite certain why this happens but type 2 diabetes tends to run in families and is more prevalent in those that are overweight.
Some type 2 diabetics may be able to control their blood sugar levels if they adopt a healthier diet, lose some weight, become more active, and stop smoking. However, this is not always easy for some that have mobility problems or have a hectic lifestyle with few chances for a healthy meal. Unless you receive help to control your blood sugar, you could be at risk for a heart attack, stroke, vision problems, and kidney disease.
Before You Administer Novolog Insulin Vials
Discuss other medical conditions and allergies you have with your doctor and any over the counter or Rx medicine you take, including dietary and vitamin supplements and herbal remedies. This will help your doctor determine if Novolog Insulin Vials contain the right medication for you.
Warnings for Novolog Insulin Vials
Until you know how your body will react to Novolog Insulin Vials, you should avoid unsafe tasks, such as driving a vehicle or operating machinery. You should always carry glucose tablets or gel or another reliable source of sugar in case you have administered the insulin but are unable to eat your meal. If your daily schedule changes, tell your doctor as your Insulin may have to be adjusted. The injection sites should be rotated so there is less chance of a particular site becoming sore or tender.
