What is Novolin?
Novolin is an injectable, intermediate-acting form of insulin prescribed for people with type 1 or type 2 diabetes. It is administered through subcutaneous injection, typically once or twice daily, or via an insulin pump. Novolin begins working within two to four hours of being injected and continues to work for up to 18 hours, though its effects peak in 4 to 12 hours.
What does Simplefill Provide?
Diabetes is a chronic disease in which the pancreas is incapable of producing enough natural insulin for adequate control of blood glucose levels. To combat this, patients require regular dosing with insulin. Poor blood sugar control increases the likelihood of serious diabetic complications, such as vision loss, heart damage, stroke, kidney failure, or circulatory problems resulting in possible loss of limbs.
Insulin-dependent diabetics can suffer life-threatening consequences if insulin is unavailable.
Simplefill firmly believes that financial difficulties should never prevent a patient who needs an essential medication like Novolin from getting it. That’s why we have built our business around connecting the people who need prescription assistance with the programs that can provide it.
How Does Novolin Work?
Novolin combines human insulin, which is manufactured in the pancreas, and protamine, a protein found in fish sperm. Protamine extends the effects of injected insulin. This form of insulin is commonly referred to as NPH (neutral protamine Hagedorn) insulin.
Novolin works in the same way as natural insulin that is produced in the human body. It helps move glucose from the bloodstream into the muscle and fat cells that need it as an energy source. Novolin also signals the liver to stop producing glucose.
