Insulin is shipped in a COLD PACK and only on Monday and Tuesdays to ensure temperature controlled delivery.
USES: This man-made insulin product is the same as human insulin. It is used along with a proper diet and exercise program to control high blood sugar in people with diabetes. Controlling high blood sugar helps prevent heart disease, strokes, kidney disease, circulation problems, blindness, and sexual function problems. Human isophane insulin is an intermediate-acting insulin. It starts to work more slowly but lasts longer than regular insulin. Isophane insulin is often used in combination with a shorter-acting insulin. In some people with diabetes, insulin may be used alone or with other diabetes drugs (e.g., sulfonylureas like glyburide). People with diabetes do not make enough insulin for their body to properly use the sugar in food. Eating a balanced diet, exercising regularly, and using your insulin as directed can help you live an active and healthy life.
