Information about Inj. Huminsulin R-40 IU/ml Solution

Huminsulin R contains Regular insulin, a peptide hormone which is central to regulating carbohydrate and fat metabolism in the body. It is a short-acting preparation. It regulates carbohydrate, protein and fat metabolism by inhibiting hepatic glucose production and lipolysis and enhancing peripheral glucose disposal. Insulin binds to the receptor. Receptor-bound insulin lowers blood glucose by facilitating cellular uptake of glucose into skeletal muscle and adipose tissue and by inhibiting the output of glucose from the liver.
