Humulin R U-500 use is on the rise
Humulin R U-500 use is on the rise...due to more patients needing higher doses of insulin to meet blood sugar goals.
Think of it as CONCENTRATED Humulin R U-100...it contains 500 units of regular insulin per mL instead of 100 units per mL.
Expect Humulin R U-500 to be saved for patients who need more than 200 units of regular insulin per day. It helps cut down discomfort by allowing patients to inject smaller volumes.
