What is Novolin N?
Novolin N replicates your body’s own naturally produced insulin. It is designed to promote glucose adsorption from the bloodstream in order to reduce the health risks posed by hyperglycemia.
How does Novolin N work?
Novolin N is often used in combination with short acting insulin to reduce blood sugar levels. This works because as an intermediate-acting insulin, Novolin N takes longer to have an effect on your body, however it lasts longer.
Novolin N typically begins working around 1.5 hours after injection, peaks from 4 to 12 hours, and works until 18 hours later. These may vary based on the individual, but are approximately the times Novolin N is designed to function.
Novolin N replicates the function of naturally produced insulin to stimulate your organs and tissue to take in more glucose from the bloodstream.
Novolin N dosage and treatment
