People who have type 1 or type 2 diabetes may benefit from using Apidra® (insulin glulisine). This prescription insulin works by controlling the spike in blood sugar levels after meals. Most people tolerate Apidra well; even when side effects occur, they are usually minor and easily treated by you or your healthcare provider. Some side effects include low blood sugar levels and reactions at the injection site. Apidra is injected just under the skin (subcutaneously) within 15 minutes before, or up to 20 minutes after, starting a meal.
