Fewer daily injections* could be in sight. Imagine what your day could hold...
U-500 is specifically for people like you – people whose A1C levels are above their target even though they’ve been taking more than 200 units of insulin each day.
U-500 is a different kind of insulin compared to standard regular insulin (U-100), as it covers both long-acting and mealtime insulin needs, which could mean fewer daily injections.*
Ask your doctor about U-500.
Meaningful results, simpler regimen*,†
In a clinical study, U-500 was shown to lower A1C by an average of 1.1% points in people who were not well controlled on more than 200 units of standard U-100 insulin a day.ǂ
U-500 is an insulin that is taken 2 or 3 times per day. Because it can be prescribed without other insulins, you may be able to reduce the number of insulins you take.
