What is Humulin® 70/30?
Short-and intermediate-acting insulins combined to cover insulin needs after meals, throughout the day, and at night
Humulin 70/30 is an insulin that combines the short action of regular human insulin (Humulin R U-100) and the intermediate action of HumulinN. Humulin 70/30 is available in the prefilled Humulin® 70/30 KwikPen® or in a Humulin 70/30 U-100 vial.
Humulin 70/30 is injected under the skin. It should not be injected into a vein or muscle. Doses of insulin are measured in units. U-100 insulins, including Humulin 70/30, contain 100 units/mL. With the Humulin 70/30 vial, it is important to use a syringe that is marked for U-100 insulins.
Do not use Humulin 70/30:
- If the insulin substance (the white material) remains at the bottom of the bottle after mixing, or
- If solid particles
If you notice your insulin requirements changing, talk to your doctor.
Be sure to read the Patient Information that comes with your Humulin 70/30 insulin.

Pens and needles are for single-patient use only and should not be shared, even in healthcare facilities, as infection or disease can be spread from one person to another.
Do not withdraw insulin from the pen using a syringe.
