Who Makes Levemir?
Levemir is manufactured by Novo Nordisk.
Studies have shown that once- or twice-daily Levemir works similarly to once- or twice-daily NPH insulin (an intermediate-acting insulin) in adults and children with type 1 diabetes
and in adults with type 2 diabetes. Studies have also shown that twice-daily Levemir works similarly to once-daily insulin glargine
), a long-acting insulin, in adults with type 1 diabetes.
More importantly, studies seem to suggest that people may gain less weight with Levemir, compared to those using Lantus or NPH insulin, although further research is necessary to confirm these findings.
