Product strength & quantity

Novolin ge NPH works like naturally occurring human insulin does, only longer. Insulin is a hormone produced by the beta cells in your pancreas that is mainly involved in your food metabolism. It helps your body use and store the sugar it gets from what you eat. For those with diabetes, either your pancreas does not make enough insulin or your body cannot use properly the insulin that is made. As a result, your sugar cannot be properly stored or used causing it to build up in your blood. Novolin ge NPH insulin is taken by people who have diabetes as a substitute for their lack of insulin. It is an intermediate-acting insulin sometimes called a basal or background insulin because it provides a full day’s worth of insulin action for your daily blood sugar level changes. After injection it usually takes 90 minutes to start working, then reaches its maximum effect between five and eight hours after and stops working after approximately 18 to 24 hours. Novolin ge NPH is structurally identical to human insulin, but it has small proteins that are called protamines mixed in to give it a longer length of insulin action.
