About Humalog, low blood sugar and insulin
Humalog® (insulin lispro injection [rDNA origin]) is a fast-acting insulin that starts working faster than other insulins that contain regular human insulin. Take Humalog within 15 minutes before eating or right after eating a meal.
There are different ways you can take Humalog, including with a syringe or a pen. Prefilled with Humalog, Humalog KwikPen can help you fit mealtime insulin into your day. It looks like a pen and is the size of a marker. It’s truly portable, so you can take it just about anywhere. There’s no need to refrigerate once it’s been used. It allows you to discreetly dose.
Low blood sugar (hypoglycemia) is the most common side effect associated with insulins, including Humalog® (insulin lispro injection [rDNA origin]). Low blood sugar normally happens when your blood sugar (glucose) level falls below 70 mg/dL. It can be caused by: Being more physically active than usual; Taking too much diabetes medication; Eating at the wrong time for the medication you take; Other medications you may be taking in addition to Humalog; Skipping or not finishing meals or snacks; A combination of these factors.
Low blood sugar can include any combination of these symptoms: Hungry; Tired; Ahaky; Sweaty; Irritable; Headachy. And they might not be the same every time. You might feel differently depending on how low your blood sugar gets or on other factors, like what caused your levels to go low. Some people may have no symptoms, so it is important to check your blood sugar regularly as your healthcare provider instructs.
