Description
Levemir® is a modern insulin (insulin analogue) with a long-acting effect. Modern insulin products are improved versions of human insulin. Levemir® is used to reduce the high blood sugar level in adults, adolescents and children aged 1 year and above with diabetes mellitus (diabetes). Diabetes is a disease where your body does not produce enough insulin to control the level of your blood sugar. Levemir® can be used with meal-related rapid acting insulin medicines. In treatment of type 2 diabetes mellitus, Levemir® may also be used in combination with tablets for diabetes and/or with injectable anti-diabetic products, other than insulin. Levemir® has a long and steady blood-sugar-lowering action within 3 to 4 hours after injection. Levemir® provides up to 24 hours of basal insulin coverage.
How to use
Levemir® can be used with meal-related rapid acting insulin medicines. In treatment of type 2 diabetes mellitus, Levemir® may also be used in combination with tablets for diabetes and/or with injectable anti-diabetic products, other than insulin.
