Humalog (insulin lispro)
Lilly will soon introduce Humalog (insulin lispro)...the first new insulin to hit the market in 14 years.
Humalog is made by switching the order of two amino acids on the human insulin chain...lysine and proline. Hence the name insulin "lispro."
Think of Humalog as similar to REGULAR insulin...with a faster onset and shorter duration. This means patients can inject it right before meals.
