Insulin, Insulin Analogs

Question from Barrow-in-Furness, Cumbria, England:

Is NovoRapid approved for use by children?

Answer:

Not yet, but very soon. However, many drugs used in children are used ‘off licence’ at the discretion of the doctor. This is normal practice in the UK [and elsewhere –Ed. ] and doesn’t mean high risk but simply that the trials have not been done on children under the age of 12.
