Understanding treatment options can be challenging-like knowing that human & analog insulins work differently. Some kick in faster, while others take longer. This calls for careful scheduling around mealtimes. Whichever insulin your doctor prescribes, always take it as directed.
The basics of human & analog insulin
In the 1980s, human insulin provided an alternative to animal-sourced insulin & it’s still used today. Analog insulin was a breakthrough in the 1990s, designed to copy the body’s natural pattern of insulin release-potentially needing fewer injections & offering a more predictable effect.
Talk insulin treatment with your doctor
Every person is unique & may respond differently to treatment. Analog insulin needs a prescription, while most human insulin doesn’t. So, talk to your doctor about the insulin type & dosing that can put you on the right track for managing your diabetes.
