We understand that the price of living is high. The price of living with diabetes can be a stressful and trying time for you and your family, and we believe that no one should sacrifice their health due to financial hardship. We help thousands of uninsured and under-insured Americans pay for medications like Humalog through the use of prescription medications. This life saving medication replicates the human hormone insulin in the body, which is incredibly important for those people that have diabetes.
What is Humalog?
Humalog is a rapid-acting insulin that helps improve blood sugar and glycemic control in children and adults who are afflicted with diabetes. By lowering blood glucose, Humalog helps patients live a healthy and productive life through the use of short acting insulin.
What is Insulin?
Simply put, insulin is produced by the pancreas in the human body that allows your body to use glucose from carbs in food to store that energy for future use. This important hormone helps keep your blood sugar level from getting too low (hypoglycemia) or too high (hyperglycemia). The pancreas is signaled every time you eat food and your blood sugar level rises, while insulin is often described as the key to unlocking a cell to allow sugar to enter it and be used for energy.
Having more sugar in your bloodstream than necessary can lead to health complications, which is why insulin helps store sugar in your liver to mediate the release of energy, such as when you engage in physical activity or in-between lunch and dinner.
Humalog: Insulin Treatment for Diabetes
People that are affected by type 1 diabetes have an inability to produce insulin. This is due to the improper functioning of beta cells in the pancreas. The insulin in Humalog helps the human body to process sugar (glucose) and avoid serious complications rom hyperglycemia.
Side Effects of Humalog
The side effects of Humalog are minor compared to untreated Diabetes type 1 or 2. Some of the common side effects can include:
- Dry mouth or increased thirst
- Increased urination
- Uneven heartbeats
- Muscle pain or weakness
- Leg pain or discomfort
- Nauseam hunger or weakness
- Low blood sugar (hypoglycemia) is the most common side effect of Humalog
