Currently, there are four basic types of insulin: Rapid-acting: Insulin lispro (Humalog); Insulin aspart (NovoLog); Insulin glulisine (Apidra)

Short-acting: regular insulin (Humulin R, Novolin R)

Intermediate-acting: NPH insulin (Humulin N, Novolin N)

Long-acting: Insulin glargine (Lantus); Insulin detemir (Levemir).

In addition, there are two different types of combination insulins, including:

Intermediate-acting plus rapid-acting: Insulin lispro protamine/insulin lispro (Humalog Mix50/50, Humalog Mix75/25); Insulin aspart protamine/insulin aspart (NovoLog Mix 50/50, NovoLog Mix 70/30)

Intermediate-acting plus short-acting: NPH insulin/regular insulin (Humulin 70/30, Novolin 70/30).

Hope the info helps? Take care, best wishes!
