Do not share your Fiasp® with other people, even if the needle has been changed. You may give other people a serious infection, or get a serious infection from them.
How to take NovoLog®
NovoLog® stays in step with your activities and mealtimes. Your health care provider will teach you how to adjust your NovoLog® dose to your eating, activity, and blood sugar levels.
NovoLog® is a rapid acting insulin taken before starting your meal. So, you will need to eat a meal within 5 to 10 minutes after taking NovoLog®.
Your diabetes care team can help you learn how to fine-tune your NovoLog® doses throughout the day. While you are figuring out how to adjust your insulin dose, you will want to stay in close touch with your diabetes care team.
NovoLog® Dosing Tool
If you have type 2 diabetes, ask your diabetes care team if the NovoLog® Dosing Tool might be a useful resource for you. This tool was created to help with adding and adjusting your mealtime insulin dose and can be requested from your health care provider.
Checking your blood sugar
When you are physically active, you must decide whether to eat more or take less insulin, since both physical activity and insulin decrease the amount of sugar in the blood.
Checking your blood sugar often when you are physically active will help you figure out how each type of physical activity you do affects your blood sugar. Your health care provider will recommend when and how often to check it, as well as your target blood sugar range.
