Starting With NovoLog® Mix 70/30
Your doctor gave you NovoLog® Mix 70/30 (70% insulin aspart protamine suspension
and 30% insulin aspart injection, [rDNA origin]) because he or she believes it is
right for you. It's one insulin that works in two ways to help you control your
blood sugar. And if you're starting with NovoLog® Mix 70/30 FlexPen® you
can take your insulin with you almost anywhere.* Take a closer look now at some
additional benefits of NovoLog® Mix 70/30.
Taking NovoLog® Mix 70/30
Your doctor will decide how much NovoLog® Mix 70/30 you should take and when
to take it. Keep in mind that your insulin needs may vary from day to day, so your
doctor may need to make some adjustments to your dosage. Some people take NovoLog®
Mix 70/30 just once a day. Others take NovoLog® Mix 70/30 twice a day—before
breakfast and before dinner.
As with all insulins, the most common side effect with NovoLog® Mix 70/30 is
hypoglycemia or low blood sugar. But a study showed
that people who took NovoLog® Mix 70/30 had 73% fewer episodes of major hypoglycemia
(very low blood sugar) compared with those taking human premixed insulin (such as
Novolin® 70/30) after one year.
