Description

Humulin N Insulin is an injectable prescribed for the treatment of diabetes mellitus that helps to maintain normal blood sugar. Humulin N Insulin allows the blood sugar to be properly used within the body by allowing the blood sugar to enter the cells so it can be used for energy. 

Uses

Insulin is used for the treatment of diabetes mellitus. Regular insulin is commonly used for stabilization of the diabetic pet and is the only formulation labeled for intravenous administration (IV); it is also administered by intramuscular (IM) and subcutaneous (SC) injection.

Possible Side Effects

Adverse effects of insulin therapy may include hypoglycemia, insulin-induced hyperglycemia (“Somogyi effect”), insulin antagonism/resistance, rapid insulin metabolism, and local reactions to the “foreign” proteins.

Drug & Food Interactions

Notify your veterinarian of any other medications, including vitamins and supplements, your pet is taking while receiving insulin.

Precautions

Do not inject insulin at the same site day after day or lipodystrophic reactions can occur. Do not change the pet's food, feeding schedule, or exercise schedule once regulated for that food and schedule. Do not use any insulin that has been frozen or exposed to direct heat or light. Make sure you are always using the appropriate type of syringe for the type of insulin you have.

This drug is FDA-approved for human use. However, it is common practice for veterinarians to prescribe such drugs for use in dogs and cats.
