Hypoglycemia may occur as a result of an excess of insulin relative to food intake, energy expenditure, or both. Mild episodes of hypoglycemia usually can be treated with oral glucose. Adjustments in drug dosage, meal patterns, or exercise, may be needed. More severe episodes with coma, seizure, or neurologic impairment may be treated with intramuscular/subcutaneous glucagon or concentrated intravenous glucose. Sustained carbohydrate intake and observation may be necessary because hypoglycemia may recur after apparent clinical recovery.
NovoLog Mix 70/30 (insulin aspart protamine and insulin aspart (rdna origin)) is contraindicated
- during episodes of hypoglycemia
- in patients with hypersensitivity to NovoLog Mix 70/30 (insulin aspart protamine and insulin aspart (rdna origin)) or one of its excipients.
