Insulin Chart

This is probably one of my top “clicked” blog item. Please know this information is not verified by anyone other than myself, and I am only a student. The information I have listed is from my school books and most importantly the individual insulin’s are as provided in the most current Davis Drug Guide, edition 12. ( If you have any questions – ask your instructor!

Please note the date of any updates provided. I like this chart because it provides all the current insulin by SQ/IV on one easy 8.5 x 11.

    I *think* that all of mixes (whether anaLOG or human (end in “lin”)) are all cloudy. I think the protamine that they add to make the intermediate-acting insulins makes the mix cloudy. I don’t KNOW for a fact that they are all cloudy, but I do know that Novolog 70/30 (currently listed as clear) is actually cloudy. Not expecting you to take my word for it, I did look it up. Here’s where I found Novolog mix 70/30 listed as cloudy (rather than clear):

    Overall, great summary!
