Alexis McKee, MD

On September 12, Alexis McKee, MD published an article on “EndocrineWeb,” titled “What Is the Peak Time for NPH Insulin?” 

“Insulin is a lifesaving hormone that is necessary for cells in your body to absorb sugar (glucose). Depending on the type of diabetes mellitus a person has, there can be a complete absence of insulin (type 1 diabetes) or just not enough to overcome what is called insulin resistance (type 2 diabetes).” 

Neutral Protamine Hagedorn (NPH) was one of the first insulins developed for those with diabetes.

In the article, Dr. McKee discusses how long it takes for NPH insulin to peak and how to afford it. She also covers the side effects, possible alternatives and various insulin types.
