ABOUT THIS MEDICATION
HUMULIN has been produced by recombinant DNA processes. It differs from animal-source insulins because it is structurally identical to the insulin produced by your body’s pancreas and because of its unique manufacturing process.
HUMULIN 30/70 is a fixed mixture of 30% HUMULIN RRegular (insulin injection, human biosynthetic) and 70% HUMULIN N- NPH (insulin isophane, human biosynthetic). It is an intermediate-acting insulin with a more rapid onset of action than NPH insulin alone. The duration of activity may last up to 24 hours following injection.
HUMULIN 30/70 cartridges are for subcutaneous (under the skin) injection only.
HUMULIN 30/70 should be used only if your doctor has prescribed insulins mixed in a ratio of 30% REGULAR and 70% NPH. You should not attempt to change the ratio of these products by adding additional NPH or REGULAR insulin to this cartridge.
If HUMULIN N and HUMULIN R mixtures are prescribed in a different proportion, the individual insulins should be mixed as instructed in the amounts recommended by your doctor or purchased as mixtures in the ratio recommended if available.
