One Batch Novolog

Go to fullsize image

Ingrediants: (x 10)
100 units Insulin Aspart
16 mg glycerin
1.50 mg phenol
1.72 mg metacresol
19.6 ug zinc
1.25 mg disodium hydrogen phosphate dihydrate
0.58 mg sodium chloride

Mix throughly, do whatever weird funky chemical reactions necessary. Bottle in 10 mL vials.
Sell to unsuspecting PWD's, $85+/vial.

Makes: 1 happy PWD, lasts 10 days-1 month.
Discard remainder.

I've gotta say, there's some pretty weird sounding stuff in there. No matter how safe it may be,its a little bit freaky to think its all being pumped into my blood stream. Especially the disodium hydrogen phosphate dihydrate!
I guess that's why it's so darn expensive...

Yeah, and to make it creepier, it's grown in bacteria. Lantus is grown in E. Coli. Lovely, ain't it?

I remember learning about how they 'grow' insulin during a baby bio required class in college. I was fascinated!

Heidi - not sure where you are in VA, but I'm having a book party next weekend. Email me if you'd like details! kassie@parentswithdiabetes.com

Disodium phosphate – Dihydrate is white crystalline, non-flammable substance. It is without odour and has bitter taste. It is easily soluble in water in alkaline solutions. When exposed to air, it changes into an anhydrous salt form. It is used in the food industry in manufacturing of diary products and as a pH regulator. It isn’t meant for direct use, but as a raw material for additional processing.

I don't think you have to be too concerned about it.

megan - penecillin is mold, so not all bacteria is bad.
