Pharmacological action 

Biosulin N insulin product average duration. It is a human insulin produced using recombinant DNA technology.

Interacts with the specific receptor zitoplazmaticescoy external cell membrane of cells to form insulin-receptor complex stimulates intracellular processes, including synthesis of several key enzymes (including geksokinazoj, pyruvate kinase, glikogensintetaza). The decrease in the content glucose in the blood due to its increase of intracellular transport, increased absorption and assimilation tissue, stimulation of lipogenesis, glikogenogeneza, a decrease in the rate of glucose production by the liver.

The duration of Biosulin N is mainly due to the rate of absorption, which depends on several factors (e.g., dose, method and place of introduction), in connection with which the action profile of insulin is subject to considerable fluctuations, as different and the same patient.

Indications:
