From Chicago, Illinois, USA:

I'm on Humalog and Lantus (insulin glargine). What new insulins are coming on the market?


There are a number of new substituted recombinant insulins being investigated, but the only one recently available in the USA is Novolog. Its action is essentially the same as Humalog. If you are interested in details and can access a medical library, look for Hedman CA, Lindstrom T, Arnqvist HJ. Direct comparison of insulin lispro and aspart shows small differences in plasma insulin profiles after subcutaneous injection in type 1 diabetes. Diabetes Care 2001 Jun;24(6):1120. Unfortunately, you can't access it on the Internet.
