    Description

    What is Humulin N insulin? a hormone used for the treatment of diabetes mellitus. It is a type of human insulin that often works well in treating diabetes mellitus in dogs too. It is a crystalline suspension with protamine and zinc. It is immediate-acting insulin which means that it is slower in onset and lasts longer (up to 24 hours).

    Formulated for : humans but is commonly used to treat dogs with diabetes mellitus. It is sometimes used for cats too but this is less common.

    How is this medication given? It is an injectable medication, generally given by subcutaneous injection (under the skin). Humulin N insulin is used to help control blood glucose levels in diabetic pets. The amount and frequency that your pet needs is individual and will be determined by your veterinarian. It is given once a day or twice a day based on your veterinarians recommendation. Just prior to use, mix the vial gently rolling it between the palms of your hands approximately 10 times. Humulin N must be used with a U-100 insulin syringe only. Use of an insulin syringe other than U-100 will result in incorrect dosing.

    How does this medication work? Insulin is a hormone that is naturally produced by the pancreas. Humulin N mimics the insulin that is normally produced. Pets with diabetes mellitus do not produce enough insulin on their own to control their blood sugar (glucose). This results in hyperglycemia (high blood sugar). Humulin N controls hyperglycemia and helps relieve the symptoms of diabetes mellitus in dogs.

    What results can I expect? Insulin is not a cure for diabetes. It will, however, help to bring your pets blood sugar to normal range. This will help manage your pets symptoms such as increased drinking (polydipsia) and increased urination (polyuria)

    What Form(s) does Humulin N come in? a liquid, injectable medication available in 10 mL vials containing 100 units per mL.
