I am a type 1 diabetic and we are out of town. I forgot to bring my Novalog with me (I take this along with Levemir on a sliding scale). I cannot get the Novalog filled but I can get the Humilin N. How would that be compared to the Novalog?
Can you check with your doctor or see a doctor where you are staying?
Humulin N is an intermediate acting insulin that starts working in 1 to 2 hours and can last for up to 24 hours.
Novalog is very fast acting insulin which starts working in around 30 minutes and only lasts up to 5 hours.
