Humalog (insulin lispro) 200 units/ml: Transitioning from insulin lispro 100 units/ml

When transitioning from Humalog 100 units/ml to Humalog 200 units/ml, no dose conversion is needed.

Detailed Information

Do NOT perform dose conversion when using the IL-200 Pen.1

The dose window shows the number of insulin units to be delivered and no conversion is needed.1

Therefore, a patient receiving 20 units of IL-100 and transitioning to the IL-200 Pen should dial the Pen to 20 units to administer the same 20-unit dose of insulin lispro.2
