Humulin N is one brand of the man-made form of insulin known as insulin NPH or insulin isophane. It is produced by Eli Lilly and Company using recombinant DNA technology from a non-pathological strain of E. coli. It combines human insulin with protamine sulfate to create a crystalline suspension. Humulin N is used to help lower blood glucose levels in people with diabetes.

Humulin N is used to help lower blood glucose levels in people with diabetes. Humulin N is one of the few insulins available without a prescription in some states (although you must ask for it at the pharmacy counter, since it has to stay refrigerated).

Humulin N is an intermediate-acting insulin, which begins to take effect between one and four hours after injection. Its peak effect occurs four to 12 hours after injection and keeps working for 12 to 18 hours after injection. For some people, it can take 24 hours to clear out of their system.

Humulin N acts like your body’s natural insulin to lower or normalize your blood sugar levels. It is often used in conjunction with a short-acting insulin and/or other oral anti-diabetic medications (such as Metformin).

This insulin can also be mixed with certain other insulins, such as regular insulin. Consult with your doctor on whether mixing insulins is right for you. They can also instruct you on the correct way to do so.

Do not take Humulin N if you are experiencing hypoglycemia (low blood sugar).

Do not take Humulin N if you are allergic to insulin isophane or any of its ingredients: dibasic sodium phosphate, glycerol, m-cresol, phenol, protamine sulfate, and zinc. It may also contain dimethicone, hydrochloric acid, and sodium hydroxide.

Humulin N can also cause fluid retention and low potassium. Let your doctor know if you experience: any weight gain, swelling in your hands or feet, shortness of breath, leg cramps, constipation, irregular heartbeat, fluttering in your chest, increased thirst or urination, numbness or tingling, muscles weakness, limp feelings.
