Admelog is a short acing insulin. It is also known as insulin lispro injection. Its functions are similar to insulin and used to control blood sugar level in peads and adults. It is used against both type of diabetes i.e. type 1 diabetes and type 2 diabetes. But it have some specifications like it is used in peads with type 1 diabetes and used in adults with type 2 diabetes. It is the 1st ever discovered short acting insulin to control blood glucose level. It is available in intravenous dosage form. Short acting insulin i.e. admelog is preferred in some cases as compare to intermediate and long acting insulin.
Diabetes is a disease related to decreased production of a hormone named insulin. Insulin is produced by liver in human body and its main function is to control blood glucose level. In diabetes, blood glucose level increases due to decrease in production of insulin by liver or body is no more showing response to insulin. It will lead to abnormal metabolism process of carbs which will ultimately increase blood glucose level. So artificial insulin is prepared and injected in body to control blood glucose level. Admelog is one short acting insulin used for that purpose.
Insulin has a main and primary activity of regulating the glucose metabolism. Insulin admelog stimulate peripheral glucose uptake to skeletal muscle and fat in order to decrease blood glucose level. It also inhibit glucose production from liver. It inhibit lipolysis and proteolysis with enhancement of protein synthesis.
Admelog Side effects
Admelog is approved after many research and clinical trials. During clinical trials, along with its effective uses its side effects are also reported. Admelog have some severe side effects like high dose of admelog can cause hypoglycemia and this can be fatal for patient life. It also cause itching and rash on skin due to rubbing. Allergic reactions are also reported. Reaction can occur at the site of injection. Sometimes tissues at the site of injection (mostly tummy) get thick and fatty or get thin and this condition is known as lipo dystrophy.
Admelog is a type of insulin which is short acting. Insulin is used in treatment of diabetes mellitus. It is effective and can be used in both types. It is used for type 1 diabetes mellitus in peads and used for type 2 diabetes mellitus in adults. It is short acting insulin with small half-life and short duration of action and have fast and sudden onset. It is preferred in few cases with diabetes mellitus like in emergency situation for sudden result. It is discovered and approved recently by FDA (food drug authority).
Admelog is available in injectable solution form with dosage 100 units/ml and vial is of 10 ml. it is also available in injectable pen form with same dosage described in injectable solution. Short acting admelog is used in type 1 diabetes at the start of day before meal to satisfy whole day insulin requirement. It should be used with 4 units i.e. 0.1 unit per kg. And should be administered 15 min before meal. Or 10 % basal dose may be used instead. If A1C is less than 8% then basal insulin dose should be decreased at same amount.
