INTRODUCTION

NOVORAPID contains Insulin aspart is a rapid–acting insulin. It is used to control diabetes mellitus (diabetes)in adults, adolescents and children aged 1 year and above. Diabetes is a condition where your body does not produce enough insulin to control the level of your blood sugar. After 15-20 minutes of injection, this medicine will start to lower your blood sugar. Its maximum effect happens between 1 and 3 hours after the injection and lasts for 3–5 hours. This medicine is normally taken in combination with other intermediate acting or long acting insulin preparations due to its rapid and short action.
