Levemir (Insulin Detemir)

Levemir, known by its generic name as Insulin Detemir, is a long-acting insulin used to manage blood sugar levels in people with diabetes. It helps regulate glucose levels throughout the day, providing a stable and consistent source of insulin. Levemir is manufactured by Novo Nordisk, a leading pharmaceutical company specializing in diabetes care.

Why Choose Levemir?

Levemir is a long-acting insulin that works by lowering blood sugar levels. It mimics the action of natural insulin produced by the pancreas, allowing glucose to enter cells, where it is used for energy or stored for future use. Levemir works steadily throughout the day, providing consistent blood sugar control.

How to use Levemir?

Levemir is typically administered once or twice daily, depending on individual needs and healthcare provider recommendations. It is administered via subcutaneous injection, usually in the thigh, upper arm, or abdomen. The specific dosage and timing of Levemir injections should be determined by a healthcare professional based on individual blood sugar levels and treatment goals.

Important Safety Information about Levemir

Before starting Levemir, inform your healthcare provider of any allergies, medical conditions, or medications you are taking. Levemir should not be used during episodes of hypoglycemia (low blood sugar) or if you are allergic to any of its ingredients. Pregnant or breastfeeding individuals should consult their healthcare provider before using Levemir.

Levemir should be stored in the refrigerator (between 36°F and 46°F) before first use. Once in use, it can be kept at room temperature (up to 86°F) for up to 42 days. Do not freeze or expose Levemir to direct heat or sunlight.
