 5  Diabetes Type 2 I'm taking between 8-13 units a meal depending on carbohydrate count and glucose level at meal time. Novolin R has worked well for me. I am unable to take oral meds and victoza made me very sick. The number of shots per day is the main drawback. F 45 3 months

NOVOLIN 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)
