I am Type I Diabetic, been so for 30+ years. Currently take Humulin R and Humulin N. Both outrageously expensive now.  Do not have insurance and talked with WalMart whose Novalin R and N much cheaper.  Is it safe to switch ? Thankyou

Hello,

It is not safe to switch to other generic versions without informing your doctor. Although the mechanism of action of both is same, but it should be done under medical supervision.


It is very difficult to precisely confirm a diagnosis without examination and investigations and the answer is based on the medical information provided. For exact diagnosis, you are requested to consult your doctor. I sincerely hope that helps. Take care and please do keep me posted on how you are doing.
