Humulin Coupons

Humulin is a life-saving medication for many people. Humulin N is a necessary medication for the treatment and maintenance of diabetes mellitus, including diabetes type 1 and 2. Since there are no generic equivalents, finding a co-pay card and a coupon can be difficult. According to a leading coupon provider, the use of the coupon can bring 1 vial of Humulin (10ml of Humulin N 100 units/ml) down to a cost of $100 a month.

What if we told you that you could fill your prescription for even less than that? If you’re an under-insured or uninsured American struggling to keep up with the cost of your prescription medication, read on.

What is Humulin?

Brought to market in 1982 by Eli Lilly and Company, Humulin offers affordable choices of insulin for people to manage their type 1 and type 2 diabetes. There are a few different types of Humulin, so talk to your doctor: they can help you determine what strength of insulin is necessary for you based on your individual blood sugar needs.

  • Humulin R U-100 – A short-acting form of insulin. Best used to cover increases in blood sugar from meals within 30 minutes of eating.
  • Humulin N – This is a synthetic form of insulin that lasts longer than insulin produced in the human body.
  • Humulin 70/30 – This medication is a combination of short and intermediate-acting insulin to cover blood sugar needs throughout the day, at night, and after meals.

Do not use Humulin if white material (the insulin itself) stays at the bottom of the vial after mixing, or if there are solid particles in the solution. Please remember that needles and pens are for single-patient use and should never be shared. It should also be noted: never try and extract insulin from a pen using a syringe, as it may damage the pen and increase the risk of injury.

Humulin Side Effects

As with any medication, Humulin comes with a risk of side effects. Common side effects can include:

  • Weight gain
  • Swelling in the hands, feet, or ankles
  • Low blood sugar
  • Hollowing/Thickening of the skin at the injection point

The above symptoms are something to watch out for; however, if you experience any of the symptoms listed below, contact your doctor immediately.

  • Leg cramps
  • Irregular heartbeats
  • Fluttering in your chest
  • Increased thirst or urination
  • Numbness or tingling in the extremities
  • Muscle weakness

Healthy Ways to Manage Diabetes

If you are one of the millions of Americans living with diabetes, there are a few things that you can do to help your condition. If you are afflicted with Type 1 diabetes, daily insulin injections are an absolute must. With your body producing no (or very little) insulin, there is a good chance of serious complication or death without regular insulin injections. The water begins to muddy when we start talking about type 2 diabetes. Many cases of type 2 diabetes have been controlled without the use of certain medications such as insulin. Healthy lifestyle changes – which we will be going over in this article – can help reduce your dependence on insulin if you are afflicted with type 2 diabetes. This goes for other diseases as well; the healthier you are overall, the better the chance you give your body to fight chronic conditions.

Managing Diabetes Naturally

Many people can reduce their dependence on insulin-related medications if proper steps are taken to change their lifestyles.

Diet Changes: One of the biggest factors in reducing negative symptoms of diabetes is to change your diet. Out with the processed foods and in with the natural ones! Foods with high fiber content such as fruits and vegetables are steps in the right direction. They help clear your body of toxins and are often filled with lots of vitamins and minerals. If you are a regular soda drinker, making the switch to water can greatly benefit your intestinal and blood sugar health.

Lifestyle Activities: If you haven’t been regularly exercising in a while, it is a good idea to get started again. One of the biggest factors of developing diabetes is a lack of activity, so getting your body moving is the first step to help combat the negative effects of high blood sugar. Start with small walks every couple of hours and eventually see if you can start running or swimming again! Start with low-impact activities such as swimming, biking, and walking to help your diabetes diagnosis.

Get Outside: Studies show that people who spend more time outside have less instances of depression and anxiety. This gives you a chance to stay active as well! Many people lack vitamin D. Vitamin D is the only vitamin that the body can produce naturally without outside foods or substances. All you need is your body and the sun’s rays. So, get outside and go to the beach!

Diabetes Prescription Assistance Programs

Even with proper diet, sun exposure and exercise, some patients will find that these steps alone are not enough to control blood sugar levels. If this is the case, contact your doctor immediately if you are in need of external insulin. Millions of Americans find that they cannot afford their prescription drugs or medications and find themselves making hard financial decisions about their future just to pay for a medication that keeps them alive. At Rx Assistance Programs, we believe that everyone has a right to affordable, life-saving medications. No one should have to choose between a roof over their head and the medication they need. At Rx Assistance Programs, we help facilitate the approval process of prescription assistance programs and get you the medication you need delivered right to your door.

Diabetic Assistance

Millions of Americans live with chronic disease. If you or a loved one suffers from a chronic disease, getting the right treatment is absolutely necessary. It’s not fair to struggle with medical bills and costly medications such as Lantus, Insulin, Humalog and other types of medications without some sort of assistance. We work with the uninsured and underinsured to make sure every American has access to the healthcare they deserve. We help thousands of diabetes patients receive the medication they need. With the rising cost of living and inflation, we have decided to advocate on our patients’ behalf through communication with pharmaceutical companies, doctors, prescription assistance programs and various grant services.

Diabetes

Diabetes is a chronic condition that affects millions of people wordwide. According to the CDC (https://www.cdc.gov/media/releases/2014/p0610-diabetes-report.html) More than 29 million people in the United States have diabetes, up from the previous estimate of 26 million in 2010, according to a report released today by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.  One in four people with diabetes doesn’t know he or she has it. Another 86 million adults – more than one in three U.S. adults – have prediabetes, where their blood sugar levels are higher than normal but not high enough to be classified as type 2 diabetes.  Without weight loss and moderate physical activity, 15 percent to 30 percent of people with prediabetes will develop type 2 diabetes within five years.

Diabetes Prevention

Diabetes is a serious chronic condition that CAN be managed! Knowing more about the disease can help you prevent it. It is split into two different types: type 1 and type 2 diabetes. Type 1 diabetes, also called juvenile diabetes, effects mostly young adults and children. This type can be managed through physical exercise, diet and proper medication. Insulin medications such as Humalog and Lantus can be covered by our prescription assistance programs. Insulin is a necessary medication to help control the effects of turbulent insulin levels in a diabetic patience.

Type 2 Diabetes

Type 2 diabetics produce insulin inside the body, but their bodies’ cannot keep up with the demand. The excess sugar becomes free-floating in the bloodstream instead of being converted into energy. Part of managing this type of diabetes involves much of what is recommended for patients with Type 1 diabetes. Healthy diet, exercise, proper hydration and exercise are highly recommended.

Diabetes Medication

There are many different types of insulin that can help manage your type 1 or type 2 diabetes. Everyone’s body is unique. Everybody responds to different medications (and the dosages) differently. Insulin can come in different forms to help the body process insulin as fast or as slowly as necessary. There are four major types. Rapid acting, short acting, intermediate acting and long acting. Talk with your doctor about what type and level of medication you need.

Diabetic Assistance

There are many medications that help manage the amount of insulin in your body: apidra, Humalog, novolog, humulin r, novolin r, lantus and levemir are just a few of the different types of insulin that we cover through our prescription assistance programs. We provide assistance for under-insured and uninsured patients that need assistance with their diabetic medication. We work with pharmaceutical companies, doctors and other healthcare providers to provide free or discounted prescription for low-to-moderate-income qualified individuals. Eligibility and application requirements vary from program to program which can sometimes make applying difficult or confusing.
