Drug Mode of Action ::  

Insulin lowers blood glucose levels. It regulates carbohydrate, protein and fat metabolism by inhibiting hepatic glucose production and lipolysis, and enhancing peripheral glucose disposal. The various insulin formulations are classified according to their durations of action after SC Inj. They are divided into short-, intermediate-, or long-acting insulin. Soluble insulin (also known as ‘neutral insulin’ or ‘regular insulin’) is a short-acting preparation. To extend the duration of action of insulin, preparations are formulated as suspensions in 2 methods. The 1st method involves complexing insulin with a protein so that it is slowly released, e.g. protamine zinc insulin (contains an excess of protamine) and isophane insulin (or NPH insulin which contains equal amounts of protamine and insulin). An alternative method is particle size modification e.g. insulin zinc suspensions. While all the formulations can be admin by SC inj, most by IM inj, only soluble insulin can be admin by IV. Compared to SC inj, IM admin usually has a faster onset of action, with a shorter duration of action.

Drug Interactions ::

Oral hypoglycemic agents, MAOIs, nonselective ?-blocker, ACE inhibitors, salicylates, alcohol, anabolic steroids & sulphonamides may reduce insulin requirement. OCs, thiazides, glucocorticoids, thyroid hormones, ?-sympathomimetics & danazol may increase insulin requirements. Octreotide/lanreotide may both decrease & increase insulin requirement. ?-blockers may mask symptoms of hypoglycemia. Alcohol may intensify or reduce hypoglycemic effect of insulin.
