 5  To lower my blood sugar The only side effects I've expirenced is blood sugar lows. I'm on a sliding scale and use different amounts depending on my blood sugar levels. I have to be very careful and sometimes snack after use to prevent lows. This product works very well for lowering blood sugar for people with diabetes. It has worked very well for me. I use humulin to cover my meals along with a 24 hour insulin and combined I've achieved very good control of my blood sugar. Humulin is my bolus insulin to cover food. I use another for my basil. Humulin has been very good in correcting my blood sugar. F 41 6 days

 3  Type 1 Diabetes Constant Hunger, Weight Gain, Lethargic Prior to being switched to Humulin R, I was an active, vigorous man, that didn't need to eat much. I developed an allergy to the binding agents used in all other forms of insulin and had no choice but to switch to this. So it is saving my life, but being told by the doctor that hunger is a side affect and to get used to is not making me a happy person. I was 5'9" 125lbs, 3 years later I am 185 lbs, I can't keep gaining 20 lbs per year. M 37 3 years

HUMULIN R  (INSULIN RECOMBINANT HUMAN):  Insulin regular is used with a proper diet and exercise program to control high blood sugar in people with diabetes. Controlling high blood sugar helps prevent kidney damage, blindness, nerve problems, loss of limbs, and sexual function problems. Proper control of diabetes may also lessen your risk of a heart attack or stroke. This man-made insulin product is the same as human insulin. It replaces the insulin that your body would normally make. It is a short-acting insulin. It works by helping blood sugar (glucose) get into cells so your body can use it for energy. This medication is usually used in combination with a medium- or long-acting insulin product. This medication may also be used alone or with other oral diabetes drugs (such as metformin).   (Sources: U.S. Centers for Medicare Services, FDA)
