Humalog Summary of Product Characteristics (SmPC)
pharmacokinetics of insulin lispro reflect a compound that is rapidly
absorbed, and achieves peak blood levels 30 to 70 minutes
following subcutaneous injection. When considering the clinical
relevance of these kinetics, it is more appropriate to examine the
glucose utilisation curves.
lispro maintains more rapid absorption when compared to soluble human
insulin in patients with renal impairment. In patients with type 2
diabetes over a wide range of renal function the pharmacokinetic
differences between insulin lispro and soluble human insulin were
generally maintained and shown to be independent of renal function.
Insulin lispro maintains more rapid absorption and elimination when
compared to soluble human insulin in patients with hepatic
lispro 200 units/ml solution for injection was bioequivalent to
insulin lispro 100 units/ml solution for injection after
subcutaneous administration of a single 20 unit dose in healthy
subjects. Time to maximum concentration was also similar between
200 Units/ml [Summary of Product Characteristics]. Utrecht, The
