How soon after taking Levemir will my symptoms improve?

Many different factors affect the levels of glucose in a person’s blood. Physical activity, diet, stress, illness, time of dosing, the amount of dosing, and even the temperature can all have an effect on blood sugar. Following your doctor's instructions regarding diet, dosing, and other lifestyle factors will help Levemir work best. Take this medication each day at the same time of the day as directed by your doctor. Levemir begins to work within a few hours of injection and stays in the system for about 24 hours.
