ADMELOG is a fast-acting mealtime insulin that helps to control blood sugar. It is designed to attempt to mimic your body’s natural insulin response to blood sugar spikes after meals. It is to be taken 15 minutes before meals or immediately after.
ADMELOG contains insulin lispro, a man-made insulin.
Long-acting insulin (along with diet and exercise) may not be enough to control your blood sugar spikes. That may be why your doctor has recommended adding ADMELOG.
Unlike long-acting insulin you take once a day, ADMELOG is a fast-acting insulin you take at mealtimes to help you manage blood sugar spikes that happen after you eat. It may also help to lower your A1c.
