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

Check the label to make sure it is the right type of insulin Always check the cartridge, including the rubber plunger stopper. Dont use it if any damage is seen or if there is a gap between the rubber plunger and the white label band. Take it back to your supplier. See your delivery system manual for further instructions Disinfect the rubber membrane with a medicinal swab Always use a new needle for each injection to prevent contamination.

Do not use Insulatard

In insulin infusion pumps If Penfill or the device containing Penfill is dropped, damaged or crushed there is a risk of leakage of insulin If it hasnt been stored correctly or been frozen see 6 How to store Insulatard If its not uniformly white and cloudy when its resuspended.

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.
