What Is Humulin R (Human Recombinant)?

Humulin R is a short-acting insulin used to control blood sugar levels in those living with diabetes. Insulin injections, when taken with proper diet and exercise, can help reduce the progression of diabetes and its health consequences.

Humulin R is an insulin injection taken by those with diabetes before meals. It is most often used in combination with longer-acting insulin in order to stabilize your body's blood sugar levels. Humulin N is a short-acting insulin used before meals.

Humulin R FAQs

  • How does Humulin R work?

    Short-acting insulin is used to prepare your body for times during the day when the glucose in your body spikes. This includes mealtimes, when your body processes the foods you eat. Humulin R is made to increase your insulin levels in sync with blood sugar spikes so as to boost the absorption of glucose from your blood into your tissues and organs.

    Humulin R is a man-made replica of your body's naturally produced insulin and will perform the same task.

  • What is the typical dosage of Humulin R?

    Humulin R is typically taken three times a day, approximately 30 minutes before meals. The exact dosage is highly individualized, and patients should always follow their doctor's exact treatment plan. Different physical factors such as age, size, diet, and medications will contribute to different dosage amounts, which may increase or decrease according to your needs.

    Humulin R should be administered by subcutaneous injection into the abdominal wall, thigh, gluteal region, or upper arm. It may be helpful for you to pinch a fold of your skin up so as to avoid injection into a muscle. Keep in mind the duration and effectiveness of each dose may vary slightly based on injection site, dose, blood flow, and temperature.

  • What are the benefits of Humulin R?

    Humulin R can help slow the progression of diabetes and reduce the many health complications posed by the disease. These include increased risk of stroke, heart and blood vessel damage, kidney failure, and blindness. Humulin R can help you regain control over your blood sugar levels, and shield your body from the dangers of hyperglycemia.

    Keep in mind that Humulin R, like all insulin, is not a final solution to your diabetes. It is necessary to make key lifestyle changes that work with your medication to improve your health.

  • What are the side fffects of Humulin R?

    Drug interactions occur when you take more than one drug at the same time. If multiple drugs are taken that interact with one another, it may change how one or both medications function, posing potential risks to your health.
