Who should not take Levemir?

Children with type 2 diabetes should not use Levemir (insulin detemir). People who are experiencing an episode of hypoglycemia (low blood sugar) should not take Levemir while their glucose is still low. Anyone who is allergic to insulin or any of the ingredients in Levemir should not use it. Certain medications may interact with this medication, so do not use it until you inform your doctor of all the medications and supplements you are taking.
