HintAnswer
Sitagliptin and metformin combo
Peak 2 - 5 hours
Novolog Mix 70/30 PenFill class
Duration ~14 hours
Glargine - Lantus class
Use: DM II. Most effective in lean patients.
Humalog class
SE: Similar to sulfonureas but with less risk of prolonged hypoglycemia.
Use: Controls blood sugar surges at mealtime
MOA: Binds to PPAR-gamma, a nuclear receptor regulating differentiation of cells (adipocytes, vascular tissue). Decreased plasma fatty acid levels, decreased central adiposity, res
Use: Controls blood sugar between meals and during sleep
Duration: 18-20 hours
Exenatide class
Metformin class
Metformin and glipizide combo
Use: First-line for most DM II, esp. obese.
Duration 18-24 hours (12-16 hours)
MOA: Lowers postprandial glucose rise by delaying CHO absorption. Decreases glucose absorption secondary to decreased digestion of carbohydrates.
Humulin N class
Rosiglitazone and glimepiride combo
Humulin Ultralente class
Pioglitazone and glimepiride combo
MOA: Similar to sulfonureas.
Humulin L (Lente) (Lilly) class
Miglitol class
Acarbose class
Rosiglitazone (Avandia) class
Nolovin R PenFill
SE: GI effects, increased transaminases (monitor). No hypoglycemia
Metformin and pioglitazone combo
P-kinetics: Rapid absorption, short duration.
Contraindications: Renal dz, liver dz, CHF, dehydration, shock, acidosis, alcoholism
Use: Combines rapid-acting and intermediate-acting insulin. Controls blood sugar at mealtime and all day and night
HintAnswer
Rosiglitazone and metformin combo
SE: Nausea, other GI effects, rare reports of pancreatitis
P-kinetics: 100 mg once daily
Humalog 50/50 class
Contraindications: Intestinal dz, cirrhosis, renal dz (creatinine > 2)
P-kinetics: Injected SQ BID
Nololin N (NPH) (Lilly) class
Novolin N class
SE: GI effects, occasional low B12, rare lactic acidosis, ovulation in PCO
Humalog Mix 75/25 class
Peak: 1 hour
Glusine - Apidra (Avemtis) class
Onset 30 minutes - 1 hour
Glipizide (Glucotrol; Glucotrol XL) class
SE: Hypoglycemia, weight gain, GI effects.
MOA: Bind to SU receptor on surface of beta cells, closing K+ATP channels -> to depolarization of cell membrane, allowing Ca++ to enter cell -> in insulin secretion.
MOA: Decreases hepatic glucose production, decreases peripheral insulin resistance, increases glucose uptake, decrease gluconeogenesis, decreases fatty liver,
Novolin R class
Onset 15-30 minutes
P-kinetics: Eliminated by renal filtration
MOA: GLP-1 agonist. Has all the properties of human GLP-1. 10 lb or greater wt loss in 1 yr
MOA: Decreases insulin resistance, increase muscle and adipose tissue glucose uptake, decreased hepatic glucose output.
Peak 6-8 hours
Avapro - Novalog (Novo Nordisk) class
Novolin 70/30 PenFill
Duration 3 - 4 hours (4-5 hours)
Glimepiride (Amaryl) class
Use: Human insulin is made by recombinant technology
Sitagliptin (Januvia) class
Humalog Mix 50/50 class
Novolog class
Glyburide (Micronase, Diabeta) class
Repalinide class
HintAnswer
Detemir - Levemir class
Humulin 50/50
NPH Iletin III (Lilly) class
Use: Onset and duration are rough within the range listed from person to person
Metformin and glyburide combo
Novolog Mix 70/30 class
Novolin 70/30 class
Nolvin N PenFill
Lispro - Humalog (Lilly) class
Contraindications: Class III/IV CHF
Humulin 70/30
Nololin 70/30
MOA: Inhibit enzymatic degradation of incretin hormones. Unlike most PO meds for DM, does not promote wt gain, there may even be slight wt loss.
Humulin R (Lilly) class
Novolin R (Novo Nordisk) class
SE: Increased plasma volume, edema, CHF, ovulation in PCO, mild anemia, rare liver toxicity, risk of fx in women. No hypoglycemia
Onset 1-4 hours
Humulin N (NPH) (Lilly) class
Regular Ileting II (Lilly) class
Novolin R PenFill
Humulin Br class
Novolog Mix 70/30 class
MOA: Lowers threshold for insulin release. Effective early; secondary failure common.
Duration: 20-24 hours
SE: No hypoglycemia
Duration 5-7 hours (6 - 8 hours)
MOA: Increases hepatic insulin sensitivity. Works through AMP dependent kinase, a mastor allosteric regulator of metabolism, that senses lack of energy substrates in cells.
Humalog 75/25 Mix class
Onset: 1-2 hours
MOA: Effective in long-duration DM, weight loss, no hypoglycemia, lowers insuling, TG, LDL
Peak: None
Apidra class
Pioglitazone (Actos) class
