Endocrine System Home > Insulin Lispro Protamine/Insulin Lispro Dosage
There is not a single, "standard" insulin lispro protamine/insulin lispro dosage that will work for all people or even for the same person in all situations. Your healthcare provider will help you decide which strength is a better choice (one contains more rapid-acting insulin than the other). Your healthcare provider may also recommend carbohydrate counting to help determine an appropriate dose.
- Your blood sugar levels
- Your blood sugar goals (which can vary from person to person)
- Your current dose of other insulins
- The carbohydrate content of your meals
- Other medications you are taking, including other diabetes medications
- Other medical conditions you may have.
