Insulatard is a long-acting insulin. This means that it will start to lower your blood sugar about 1?? hours after you take it, and the effect will last for approximately 24 hours. Insulatard is often given in combination with fast-acting insulin products.
How is it used
Talk about your insulin needs with your doctor and diabetes nurse. Follow their advice carefully. This leaflet is a general guide.
If your doctor has switched you from one type or brand of insulin to another, your dose may have to be adjusted by your doctor.
It is recommended that you measure your blood glucose regularly.
Before using Insulatard
Do not use Insulatard
Do not refill Insulatard Penfill. Penfill cartridges are designed to be used with Novo Nordisk insulin delivery systems and NovoFine or NovoTwist needles.
If you are treated with Insulatard Penfill and another insulin Penfill cartridge, you should use two insulin delivery systems, one for each type of insulin.
