Introduction to Novomix 30 Flexpen 100iu

Novomix 30 Flexpen 100IU contains the active substance Insulin Aspart and Insulin Aspart Protamine. It is a combination of two different types of insulin, the first is the insulin aspart (rapid-acting insulin) and the second is the insulin aspart protamine (intermediate-acting insulin). It is used to treat diabetes mellitus(a chronic clinical disease where too much glucose is present in the blood). In diabetes, your body does not produce the sufficient hormone insulin to control your blood glucose levels. 

It is necessary to check your blood sugar with a home blood sugar meter (glucometer). When your blood sugar is high for too long, you may experience increased urination, feeling thirsty, feeling sick (nausea or vomiting), feeling drowsy or tired, abdominal pain, a flushed face, and a fruity (acetone) smell of breath. These may be signs of a very serious condition called diabetic ketoacidosis where there is a build-up of acid in the blood because the body is breaking down fat instead of sugar. Please consult the doctor immediately if you have the above symptoms. This injection may cause injection site reactions, such as pain, redness, itching, or swelling at the injection site. These reactions are usually mild and go away on their own, but if they persist or become severe, contact your doctor immediately. This medicine is not recommended for use in children under the age of 2 years. Also, it is not intended for intravenous administration, because the intravenous use of insulin can lead to hypoglycemia, hypokalemia, or other serious side effects.

Novomix 30 Flexpen 100IU should be used with caution in individuals with severe hepatic(liver) or renal(kidney) impairment, as insulin requirements may be reduced in these patients. Some medications such as corticosteroids may affect blood sugar control and insulin dose adjustment is required. If you are pregnant or planning to become pregnant, it is important to consult with your doctor before using this penfill. During pregnancy, insulin requirements may change, and it is important to monitor blood sugar levels closely to ensure optimal glucose control for both the mother and the developing fetus. In case you are already using this injection and become pregnant, do not stop taking your insulin without first consulting with your doctor. It is important to maintain good glucose control during pregnancy to minimize the risk of complications for both you and your baby.
