Diabetes medicine

All diabetics have to adhere to diet, exercise and discipline. In many cases, especially in elderly patients, the disease can be controlled if these three are observed properly.

There are two types of diabetes medicine
1) Food Pills. 2) Insulin.

1. Types of food pills
1. Expanding insulin emission, for example, glybenclamide, glipizide, glyclazide, repaglinide, natiglinide
2. Upgrading the viability of insulin, for example, metformin, pyoglitazone
3. Preventing gastrointestinal glucose maintenance. For instance, Ekarboj
4. Citagliptin vildagliptin, etc, to augment insulin outflow and protect cells.

Something about insulin

There are two primary sorts of insulin utilized in our country :
1) Transparent, Regular or Short Term Insulin (Humolin R, Insuman-Rapid and so forth) and
2)Cloudy or medium term insulin (Humolin-N, Insuman Bejal, Insulated and so forth.)

The first seems to be water, the work begins 30 minutes after the infusion, it works more often than not in 2 to 4 hours and its functioning term is 6 to 8 hours.

The second is cloudy; It starts working one and a half hours after the injection, it works for a maximum of 8 to 12 hours and its working time can be up to 18 hours.

Other insulin

Premixid Insulin: These insulin bottles contain clear and cloudy insulin in varying proportions. Example - 30:70; 25 :75; 50 :50; 40:60 etc. They start working in 30 minutes and last for 18 to 20 hours. For example-

1) Insulin mixed 30:60; 50:50
2) Insulin Insuman Comb 25:75
3) Humulin 60:30 etc

The mentioned insulin should be given half an hour before eating.

Recent insulin
1. Insulin analogs act quickly.
A) Insulin Aspart. B) Insulin Lispro.

This insulin comes in the blood in 10 to 15 minutes and starts working at maximum in one hour. Duration 3 to 4 hours. This type of insulin can be given before or after meals.

2. Insulin analogs long term. For example- Insulin Glargin, Insulin Ditamer. This insulin starts working in 1 hour. Duration 24 hours This type of insulin can be given once a day at a specified time. In most cases it is better to give at certain times of the night. It has nothing to do with food.

3. Premixed analog, for example- Insulin Aspart Mix, Insulin Lispro Mix. This insulin starts working in 15 minutes, lasting 24 hours.

Insulin storage: 

Insulin needs to be kept in a cool place. Otherwise its performance decreases. If you want to keep it for more than a month, keep it in the fridge at a temperature of 2° to 8° Centigrade. In rural areas where there is no refrigerator or those who do not have a refrigerator at home, they can wrap a spotless fabric insulin bottle in a medium measured pottery container and close the cover on the container and keep the insulin in a somewhat dim and cool spot like bed or pantry. On the off chance that you don't have a cooler, it is recommended not to buy more than one month's worth of insulin.
