NovoLog Mix 70/30 Dosage
There is no standard NovoLog Mix 70/30 dosage, as dosing is based on your individual response to the medication and the carbohydrate content of your meals. The drug is taken twice daily before the morning and evening meals. Your healthcare provider may recommend carbohydrate counting or ask you to measure your blood sugar before and after meals to help determine your NovoLog Mix 70/30 dosing.
The dose of NovoLog® Mix 70/30 (insulin aspart protamine/insulin aspart) that your healthcare provider recommends will vary, depending on a number of factors, including:
- Your current dose of other insulins
- How you respond to NovoLog Mix 70/30 (especially as measured by your blood sugar levels)
- The carbohydrate content of your meals
- Other medications you are taking, including other diabetes medications
- Other medical conditions you may have.
As is always the case, do not adjust your dose unless your healthcare provider specifically instructs you to do so.
There is no "standard" NovoLog Mix 70/30 dose that will work for all people or even for the same person in all situations. NovoLog Mix 70/30 is made up of two different insulins, 70 percent intermediate-acting (insulin aspart protamine) and 30 percent rapid-acting (insulin aspart). It is taken twice a day within 15 minutes before the morning and evening meals. Each dose is intended to cover two meals or a meal and a snack.
You may be asked to measure your blood sugar before and after meals, and your healthcare provider may recommend carbohydrate counting. Both of these things can help you and your healthcare provider know how to dose your NovoLog Mix 70/30.
