Variety of Brands and Mixes of Insulin Medications Can Be Confusing to Patients
A patient came to my office to learn to use long-acting insulin. The referring provider's note stated that the new patient, who was establishing care without outside records, was taking only mealtime insulin: NovoLog. During my assessment, the patient stated "NovoLog 75/25" was used three times per day, before meals. Knowing that Novo does not make a 75/25 mix, and having read the provider's note, I clarified whether the insulin was a mixed insulin and whether the patient truly took it three times per day before meals. The patient repeated, yes, that was the case.
