Humulin S contains human insulin as the active ingredient, which is used to treat diabetes. You have diabetes if your pancreas does not make enough insulin to control your blood glucose level (blood sugar). Humulin S is used for long-term glucose control. Humulin S is a fast-acting insulin preparation. Your doctor may tell you to use Humulin S together with slower-acting insulin. Each insulin contains its own package insert that will inform you about it. Do not change your insulin unless your doctor tells you to. Be careful if you change insulin. Each type of insulin has a different color and symbol on the bottle and vial so you can easily tell the difference.

What is Humulin S?

The Humulin S insulin medication contains human insulin as the active ingredient, which is used for the treatment of patients with diabetes mellitus who require insulin to maintain glucose homoeostasis. Humulin S is a rapid-acting insulin injection and is also indicated for the initial control of diabetes mellitus and in diabetes mellitus in pregnancy.

How does it work?

To counteract insulin resistance, The hypoglycaemic effect of insulin occurs when it binds to insulin receptors in muscle and fat cells, facilitating the absorption of glucose and simultaneously inhibiting hepatic glucose production. It is fast-acting insulin. The action starts after 30 min, the max effect. It occurs at 1.5 to 3.5 hours with an approximate duration of action of 7-8 hours.

What are the benefits of taking it?

Known for being a diabetes treatment medication; Humulin S helps the body convert blood sugar into energy. We always have a little sugar in our blood. This means that the pancreas has to produce small amounts of insulin during the day. When you eat, your blood sugar increases. This means that the pancreas needs to make more insulin during meals. When it is more active, the body uses more sugar and needs less insulin. When a person has diabetes, blood sugar remains high. That’s where Humulin S comes in and acts.

How do I use it and its dosage?

Make sure you get the Humulin S that your doctor has told you to use.

Follow exactly the instructions for the administration of Humulin S indicated by your doctor. Consult your doctor if you have doubts.
