Insulin lispro protamine and Insulin aspart protamine are suspensions of crystals produced from combining insulin lispro and protamine sulfate, and insulin aspart and protamine sulfate, respectively, under appropriate conditions for crystal formation. The addition of protamine makes insulin lispro and insulin aspart, which are rapid acting insulin, into intermediate acting insulin.

If added therapy for type 2 diabetes is needed after lifestyle management and metformin use, liraglutide (Victoza) and empagliflozin (Jardiance) have proven to reduce major cardiovascular (stroke, heart attack) and cardiovascular mortality (death). In the 2018 ADA guidelines, these drugs are recommended as first-choice agents in patients with established atherosclerotic cardiovascular heart disease (ASCVD), after considering patient and drug-specific factors. Canagliflozin (Invokana) can be selected based on a reduction in major cardiovascular events. These three agents may also have a benefit in the progression of diabetic kidney disease. ASCVD is defined as coronary heart disease, cerebrovascular disease, or peripheral artery disease.
A hemoglobin A1C test is also called a glycosylated hemoglobin test. It measures average blood glucose levels for the previous two or three months. You don’t need to fast for this test, and your doctor can diagnose you based on the results.
