Insulin profiles

The following are presented as generalised profiles of various popular insulins, indicating the approximate duration and intensity of activity. They are derived largely from manufacturers’ data as representing typical activity patterns in T1 diabetics. It is important, however, to note that individuals can vary significantly in how insulins work for them and the profiles may, in some cases, vary somewhat according to the dosage amount.

A more comprehensive chart for Levemir and how it varies according to dose may be seen here.
