What type of insulin is Levemir Flextouch?
Levemir is a soluble analog of basal insulin with a prolonged profile of action, which is used as basal insulin. The hypoglycemic effect of the drug is to promote the uptake of glucose by tissues after binding of insulin to the receptors of muscle and fat cells, as well as the simultaneous inhibition of glucose secretion from the liver. The
duration of action of Levemir is statistically significantly less variable than that of the neutral protamine Hagedorn (NPH-insulin). Levemir is released gradually and therefore causes less dramatic changes in blood glucose levels compared to conventional long-acting NPH insulins. The prolonged action of the drug is due to the close
relationship of insulin detemir molecules at the injection site and the attachment of albumin to them through the side chain of fatty acids. Compared with NPH insulin, insulin detemir is more slowly distributed in peripheral target tissues. This combined mechanism of prolongation of action causes a more predictable absorption and
action profile of the drug Levemir FlexPen than NPH insulin.
In combination with such agents, the initial dose of Levemir® is 10 U or 0.1–0.2 U / kg. The dose selection is carried out according to the needs of the patient.
