What Is Levemir?
Levemir (insulin detemir) is a relatively new addition to the list of medications used to treat diabetes. Diabetes develops when the body is incapable of producing enough insulin to control the level of glucose (sugar) in the blood. Levemir is a long-acting manmade form of insulin used to help manage both Type 1 and Type 2 diabetes. It is prescribed for adults and for children aged two and up.
What Does Simplefill Provide?
Many people with chronic diseases and health conditions are being forced to make difficult decisions between buying the medications they need and paying for other necessities. The uninsured are particularly vulnerable, but even those with insurance may not be able to afford their co-pays and deductibles.
Pharmaceutical companies and other organizations offer patient assistance programs, but patients are not always aware that help is available to them. When you work with Simplefill, we can help you find the programs you are likely to qualify for and help you apply and enroll.
How Does Levemir Work?
Levemir acts slowly and is effective for a long period of time, up to 24 hours. Once injected, it doesn’t start to act right away, because it is not absorbed immediately at the injection site. Rather, it is absorbed into the bloodstream and slowly transforms into an active state. Because it is long-acting, episodes of hypoglycemia (low blood sugar) are far less likely than with fast-acting insulin. And Levemir continues to control your blood sugar in between meals and overnight.
