Answer

Antidiabetic Agents, Insulin

Insulin is given to overcome insulin resistance, but large quantities are often required.

Insulin (Humulin, Novolin, Humalog)

Insulin stimulates proper utilization of glucose by the cells and reduces blood sugar levels. Various preparations are currently available. There are rapid-acting, intermediate acting, and long-acting formulations. Insulin mixes are also available that provide a rapid onset and an intermediate duration of action.
