Insulin Types Directory

There are several kinds of insulin. Two things determine the type of insulin for your diabetes. First, how fast the insulin needs to act (the onset). A patient may need a rapid-acting vs a long-acting insulin. The next is how will the body get its insulin. Patients take insulin via inhaler, injection, or pump. Your doctor will help decide what type of insulin you need. Follow the links below to find WebMD's comprehensive coverage about insulin types, what they look like, their uses, and much more.
