Insulin users today have a great variety of products from which to choose. In the past few years, two fast-acting analogs (Humalog and NovoLog) and one long-acting analog (Lantus) have been introduced and have changed the way many people use insulin.
This poll shows a continuing decline in the use of regular and NPH insulin, in favor of the insulin analogs Humalog, NovoLog and Lantus. Especially dramatic is the rise in the use of NovoLog, up 400% since 2002. This table compares the results of this poll the previous polls we've run:
Insulin 2003 2002 2000 Short acting insulins Humalog 34% 37% 35% NovoLog 12% 3% -- Regular 3% 4% 12% Long acting insulins NPH 22% 28% 32% Lente 1% 3% 4% Ultralente 2% 5% 7% Lantus 17% 11% -- Other Premixed 2% 2% 5% Other insulin 2% 2% 2%
