Diabetes mellitus, type I (insulin-dependent); diabetes mellitus, type II (insulin-independent): the stage of resistance (resistance) to oral (taken by mouth) hypoglycemic (blood sugar lowering) agents, partial resistance to these products (combination therapy), intercurrent (complicating the course of diabetes mellitus) diseases, operations (monotherapy / treatment with one product / or combination therapy), pregnancy (if diet therapy is ineffective).

Pharmacological action:
Crystalline zinc suspension of monocomponent beef insulin. Refers to long-term products.
The beginning of action – 4 hours. The maximum effect is 10-30 hours. Duration of action – 36 hours.

Ultralente MC (Ultralente ms) method of administration and dose:
The dose is selected by the doctor strictly individually. The drug is injected deep subcutaneously. It should not be injected into the same place. Before injection, the contents of the vial must be shaken vigorously in order to completely mix the insulin with the diluent. The appropriate dose of the product must be immediately drawn up into a syringe and administered to the patient.
In type I diabetes mellitus ultralente MS is used as basic insulin (the main method of treatment) in combination with a fast-acting insulin product. In type II diabetes mellitus, ultralente MS can be used both as monotherapy and in combination with fast-acting insulins.
At a daily dose exceeding 0.6 U / kg of body weight, insulin must be administered in the form of 2 or more injections at different sites.
Patients receiving 100 IU or more per day should be hospitalized when replacing insulin.
The transition from one insulin product to another should be carried out under the control of blood glucose levels.
Alpha-adrenergic blockers, oxytetracyclines, strophanthin, salicylates increase the activity of endogenous (formed in the body) insulin. Oral contraceptives and glucocorticoids reduce the activity of insulin. The simultaneous use of alcohol or the appointment of beta-adrenergic blockers can lead to hypoglycemia (low blood sugar levels). Simultaneous administration of thiazide derivatives can cause hyperglycemia (an increase in blood sugar levels). The dose of insulin must be adjusted in the following cases: with infectious diseases, surgical interventions, pregnancy, thyroid dysfunction, Addison’s disease (decreased adrenal function), hypothyroidism (insufficient hormonal function of the pituitary and hypothalamus – endocrine glands,
pituitary gland and antidiuretic hormone), renal failure and diabetes mellitus in persons over 65 years of age.
