What Is Novolin R (Regular Insulin)?

There are several different types of insulin treatments that affect your body in a variety of ways. Some are long-acting, taken consistently (typically once a day) to help control your blood sugar over a longer period of time. Others are short acting.

Novolin R is a short acting insulin, meaning it is prescribed to be taken before or after meals to account for times during the day when your body experiences a spike in glucose levels.

Novolin R, like most short-acting insulin, is typically used in combination with long-acting insulin treatments to compensate for any remaining imbalance that may need to be corrected in order to stabilize your blood sugar levels.
