NovoLog Mix 70/30 Uses

NovoLog Mix 70/30 is used for treating diabetes. It is a medication that contains an intermediate-acting insulin and a rapid-acting insulin that helps to control blood sugar levels in people with type 1 or type 2 diabetes. Healthcare providers may also sometimes recommend off-label NovoLog Mix 70/30 uses, such as for the treatment of gestational diabetes. This medication is not approved for use in children.

Uses of NovoLog Mix 70/30: An Overview

NovoLog® Mix 70/30 (insulin aspart protamine/insulin aspart) is a form of insulin used to help control blood sugar in people with diabetes. This medication combines an intermediate-acting insulin (insulin aspart protamine) and a rapid-acting insulin (insulin aspart). It is designed to control blood sugar with just two injections per day.
 

NovoLog Mix 70/30 Uses for Type 1 Diabetes

Although type 1 diabetes usually begins in childhood or adolescence, this is not always the case. With this type of diabetes, the pancreas stops producing insulin. This means that people with type 1 diabetes need to take insulin on a regular basis to help keep their blood sugar at the right level.
 
In healthy people without diabetes, insulin levels do not stay the same throughout the day; instead, they fluctuate in response to changes in blood sugar levels. In order to mimic the natural insulin changes that help keep blood sugar safely controlled, NovoLog Mix 70/30 contains a mixture of a rapid-acting insulin along with an intermediate-acting insulin. Each dose is meant to cover two meals or one meal and one snack.
