Which insulins do you or your child use?

Poll dates: January 5 - 12, 2003

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:
