Who should use Novolog Flexpen?

If you have type 1 or type 2 diabetes, Novolog Flexpen could form a part of your treatment plan. Novolog Flexpen uses a fast-acting type of insulin intended to counter the spikes in blood sugar that can occur after meals. You may still need to use an intermediate- or slow-acting insulin to help keep blood sugar levels stable throughout the day. Novolog Flexpen is often used in combination with other insulin treatments. Both children and adults can use Novolog Flexpen.
