What is the difference between the human actrapid and human mixtard please tell to me now.
Actrapid action is only for few hours because it has very short span of life and Mixtard acts for twelve hours because it has short and long acting insulin

Mr. lybrate-user, Thanks for the query. There are many different types of insulins, some are for rapid action like Insulin Actarapid, which starts action with in minutes of injection and helps prevent after food glucose rise. Other Insulin has a longer duration of action, which will prevent late rise of blood glucose. Human Mixtard is a combination of fast acting and long acting insulin. Some are 30/70 & some are 50/550 combinations. Where 30% is fast acting and other part is long acting. The change must have been made to achieve better glucose control. Thanks.

lybrate-user, Thanks for the query. Insulin happens to be the best treatment for diabetes, because diabetes occurs due to its (insulin's) deficiency. Secondly if a person is having T1 Dm then only drug that can be used is Insulin. In T2 DM there are a number of oral drugs available. Since you have neither mentioned your age or type of diabetes, it is difficult to answer your question. My suggestion is please come back with following details: age, type of diabetes, weight, height, fasting & PP glucose levels, HbA1c%, dietary pattern & extent of daily exercise. It will be good if you come in a private conversation, then I will be able to give very specific guidance and even the prescriptions. In this communication we are supposed to give just general guidelines, no prescription can be given. Further unless all the details are known, it is difficult to know the present control of diabetes in you. Thanks.

which one is best.
Hi, basically novo mix is a newer insulin analogue with a mix of 30% short acting and 70% long acting insulin. On the other hand human mixyard is a conventional insulin. The difference is in their properties and effectivity.
