Diabetes Home > Humalog Dosage
Your healthcare provider will recommend a Humalog dosage based on how you respond to the medication and your current dose of other insulins. There is no standard dose that will work for the same person in all situations. For example, smaller Humalog doses are necessary if you eat a low-carbohydrate meal, while larger doses are necessary after meals with a high carbohydrate content.
- The carbohydrate content of your meals
- How you respond to Humalog (especially as measured by your blood sugar levels)
- Your current dose of other insulins
- Other medications you are taking, including other diabetes medications
- Other medical conditions you may have.
