Types of Insulin and How They Work

What are the different types of insulin ?

Several types of insulin are available. Each type starts to work at a different speed, known as “onset,” and its effects last a different length of time, known as “duration.” Most types of insulin reach a peak, which is when they have the strongest effect. Then the effects of the insulin wear off over the next few hours or so.Diabetes Clinic in Navi Mumbai.
