What is Apidra?
Apidra (insulin glulisine) is a rapid-acting insulin analog that works similarly as the insulin created in the body. It is used in the treatment of both type 1 and type 2 diabetes in adults and type 1 diabetes in children age four and older.
Apidra is injected subcutaneously at mealtimes, within a window beginning 15 minutes before and 20 minutes after beginning to eat. It kicks in about 15 minutes after being injected and continues to lower blood sugar for up to four hours. Apidra can also be administered via an insulin pump.
What does Simplefill Provide?
Diabetics know that their ability to control their blood sugar is essential to avoiding serious complications of diabetes such as kidney failure, vision loss, peripheral neuropathy, and amputations. That degree of responsibility for their own health and reliance on an unbroken supply of insulin can be very stressful for people living with diabetes. This is especially true if they’re having trouble paying for the Apidra that is keeping their blood sugar under control.
Simplefill reduces that financial stress by connecting people seeking prescription assistance to the Apidra assistance programs that offer help.
How does Apidra Work?
Like the insulin produced in the body, Apidra stimulates peripheral tissues (skeletal muscle and fat) to absorb glucose. This signals the liver to produce less glucose because the metabolic needs of peripheral tissues are being met. Apidra and other insulins also inhibit the process through which stored fats are metabolized, releasing glucose into the bloodstream.
