Default Humalog VS. Novolog

What is the difference? Price? How it works?

As far as I know, that are pretty much the same. Both are fast acting insulins that start working and peak the same way. The only difference I am aware of is that Humalog is made by Lilly and Novolog is made by Novo Nordisk. There may be some cost difference for different insurances, not really sure about that one. I use Humalog.

I agree with what Pam said that the difference in how they perform is very marginal and a lot of people don't see a differance at all.

Default Humalog -vs- Novorapid

Good day,

I used Humalog for a few years. I then switched to Novorapid last year. No difference at all. They both work equally well. Why did I switch? My insulin pump manufacturer had a deal with Novonordisk.

Regards
James

There is no way to fix type 1 diabetes. You have no choice but to take insulin, which by the way is as natural as you can get, so as far as I am concerned you can go pedal your diets and herbs some place else.

I agree with you. There is no doubt that scores of plants, herbs, fungi etc., have given us scores of man made drugs. However, this recent post is just SPAM.

How are you Bountyman, I never knew that about India. I see that Shanny did remove that individual.
