What is Humulin N insulin? a hormone used for the treatment of diabetes mellitus. It is a type of human insulin that often works well in treating diabetes mellitus in dogs too. It is a crystalline suspension with protamine and zinc. It is immediate-acting insulin which means that it is slower in onset and lasts longer (up to 24 hours).

Formulated for : humans but is commonly used to treat dogs with diabetes mellitus. It is sometimes used for cats too but this is less common.

How is this medication given? It is an injectable medication, generally given by subcutaneous injection (under the skin). Humulin N insulin is used to help control blood glucose levels in diabetic pets. The amount and frequency that your pet needs is individual and will be determined by your veterinarian. It is given once a day or twice a day based on your veterinarians recommendation. Just prior to use, mix the vial gently rolling it between the palms of your hands approximately 10 times. Humulin N must be used with a U-100 insulin syringe only. Use of an insulin syringe other than U-100 will result in incorrect dosing.

How does this medication work? Insulin is a hormone that is naturally produced by the pancreas. Humulin N mimics the insulin that is normally produced. Pets with diabetes mellitus do not produce enough insulin on their own to control their blood sugar (glucose). This results in hyperglycemia (high blood sugar). Humulin N controls hyperglycemia and helps relieve the symptoms of diabetes mellitus in dogs.

What results can I expect? Insulin is not a cure for diabetes. It will, however, help to bring your pets blood sugar to normal range. This will help manage your pets symptoms such as increased drinking (polydipsia) and increased urination (polyuria)

What Form(s) does Humulin N come in? a liquid, injectable medication available in 10 mL vials containing 100 units per mL.

Generic Name : NPH human insulin

Common Brand Name: Humulin-N (Lilly)

Dose and Administration : Humulin N is a human insulin. It is not FDA approved for use in veterinary medicine but it is a commonly accepted practice for veterinarians to use this medication in dogs and cats. It is very important to follow your veterinarians precise instructions regarding this medication. The dose of Humulin N insulin is determined by means of a blood glucose test and is individual for your pet. Do not give your pet an injection of this or any other medication unless you have been trained on how to do so by your veterinarian.

Doses can vary and will be determined by your veterinarian. Do not shake the insulin prior to use but roll it between the palms of your hands to mix everything up. If you miss a dose of Humulin N, contact your veterinarian for further instructions.

Only use prescribed U-100 syringes (sold separately) with Humulin N or the dose will be given incorrectly.

Insulin should be given with food to make sure your pets blood sugar does not fall too low. Your veterinarian will instruct you on the best diet and exercise plan for your pet.

Possible Side Effects: Side effects may include weakness, tiredness, shaking, seizures or coma which may be the result of your pets blood sugar falling too low(hypoglycemia). Some cats may appear immobile although this is rare.

Hyperglycemia (high blood sugar) has symptoms of increased thirst and urination, vomiting, and change in gait or weakness. If you notice these symptoms once your pets diabetes has been regulated, the dose may need to be adjusted.

Symptoms of a true allergic reaction include facial swelling, hives, scratching, sudden onset of diarrhea, vomiting, shock, seizures, or coma. If your pet demonstrates any unusual symptoms, contact your veterinarian immediately because immediate treatment may be necessary.
