NovoLog® (insulin aspart) is a form of insulin that is given by injection. This drug acts rapidly and is used to control blood sugar after meals in people with diabetes. It starts working more quickly, produces a higher peak, and stops working more quickly than regular human insulin.
NovoLog is not right for everyone, so prior to starting treatment with this medication, be sure to tell your healthcare provider if you have liver disease, kidney disease, or any allergies. Also, let him or her know if you are pregnant or breastfeeding.
