Pharmaceutical name: Monocomponent Human Insulin

Huminsulin R is used alongside a healthy diet and regular exercise to help improve blood sugar level control in adults and children with type 1 and type 2 diabetes mellitus. It is also used to treat gestational diabetes and diabetic complications, such as hyperosmolar hyperglycemic and diabetic ketoacidosis (DKA) states. It may also be used in combination with glucose (sugar) to help lower potassium levels in those with hyperkalemia (high blood potassium).

Huminsulin R is a short-acting insulin analog that begins working 30 minutes after injection, and it can last approximately 6 to 8 hours. It can give you protection against the blood sugar spikes that occur after meals, if you take it 30 to 60 minutes before the meal.

Huminsulin R works by mimicking the action of human insulin, which is normally produced in your pancreas. Insulin lowers your blood sugar levels by absorbing sugar from your blood and converting it into cells that your fat, liver and muscles can use. Your doctor has prescribed you with insulin injections to control your diabetes because it can keep your blood sugar at a healthy level and keep your urine as free of sugar as possible.

To cover your insulin needs for meals, Huminsulin R should be taken 30 to 60 minutes before eating. Humulin R should be taken subcutaneously (under the skin) in either the thighs, buttocks, the upper arms or abdomen. Your injection sites should be switched to make sure that the same site is not used more than about once a month. Make sure to not enter any blood vessels or muscle tissue. Your vial should be clear and colorless. Do not use it if it appears thickened, cloudy, slightly colored, or if solid particles are noticeable.

Common negative effects may include: hypoglycemia. Less common negative effects may include: injection site reactions, diabetic ketoacidosis (DKA), insulin allergy.

It should not be used: if you are allergic to this drug or any of the ingredients, if you have hypoglycemia (low blood sugar), for treatment of diabetic coma, intravenously. If there are clumps floating in the vial or there are white particles stuck to the bottom or side giving the vial a frosted appearance
