A Different Premix Insulin Option

Compare NovoLog® Mix 70/30 with the human premix insulin you take now

There is a difference between the human premix insulin you may be taking now (such as Novolin® 70/30) and NovoLog® Mix 70/30, a premix insulin analog. Premix insulin analogs are a more recent type of insulin. They have been changed slightly to allow the fast-acting component to act more quickly and the long-acting component to act more slowly and longer than regular human insulin in order to more closely mimic the way the body releases insulin.

See the differences for yourself:

NovoLog® Mix vs Human Premix


Fewer cases of very low blood sugar in a study

Low blood sugar is the most commmon side effect of all insulin, including NovoLog® Mix 70/30. In a 2-year study, it was shown that people who took NovoLog® Mix 70/30 had fewer episodes of very low blood sugar (major hypoglycemia) compared with those taking human premix insulin.

Flexible dosing

In people with type 2 diabetes, NovoLog® Mix 70/30 can be taken 15 minutes before OR after starting your meal instead of 30 minutes before a meal like with human premix (such as Novolin® 70/30). In this way, NovoLog® Mix 70/30 offers flexible dosing around meals for people with type 2 diabetes, so you don’t have to wait as long to eat.
