DIFFERENT INSULIN WORK IN DIFFERENT WAYS

INJECTABLE INSULIN MEDICATION ARE TWO TYPES

  • HUMAN INSULIN

Human insulin, you would expect from the name that human insulin comes from a human. Actually, its made in a lab. It’s called “ human insulin “ because the hormone made in a lab is, in fact, identical to the insulin your body makes. Its types are-

REGULAR HUMAN INSULIN

It is short acting. You usually take it before a meal to cover rises in blood sugar that happens when you eat.

INTERMEDIATE- ACTING HUMAN INSULIN

It is only taken once or twice a day and works longer to control blood sugar than regular insulin.

PREMIX

Human premix insulin is regular and intermediate-acting insulin combined with 1 dose.

  • INSULIN ANALOGS

Aside from human insulin, there are “insulin analogs”. Insulin analogs are human insulins with small changes made to the hormones so that they are absorbed faster or last longer in the body.let’s move on to its types

LONG – LASTING

It works to control blood sugar between meals and overnight while you sleep.it took either once or twice a day, at the same time every day.

RAPID/ FAST-ACTING

it is something called mealtime insulin because it’s taken when you eat.This insulin works quickly to control the rise in blood sugar caused by food.

Rember, there are risks comes with any medications, follow your health care provider’s direction carefully.

NON- INJECTABLE INSULIN MEDICATION

  • GLP-1 RECEPTOR AGONIST

IT IS A MEDICINE THAT WORKS LIKE GIP-1 HORMONE

It stands for glucagon-like peptide-1.this hormone is produced in the gut in response to the food you eat.

Its work has:

Slows the movement of food through the stomach

Helps pancreases make more insulin at meal time

Signals the liver to release less sugar.

  • AMYLIN AGONIST

It does all work as GLP-1 RECEPTOR AGONIST  do expect liver to release sugar.

Whichever diabetes medicine your health care provider prescribe for you, it’s important to take as you’ve been instructed.

Keep in mind, these require a prescription from your health care provider, and he or she will work with you to decide which one is right for you.

So, we learned that diabetes can have some pretty harmful, that’s why it’s important to educate yourself about the effect of diabetes.
