In brief: Rapid acting insulin

Like other Insulin analogs Humalog (insulin lispro) (lispro) is a rapid acting meal time insulin.
It can be injected before or immediately after meal. It has a quick onset, short duration of action, less variation in absorption and decrease chances of low blood sugar (hypoglycemia) if use appropriately. Indicated for management of diabetes mellitus. Humalog (insulin lispro) is administered subcutaneously only. Can be use in pumps.
