U-500R is a concentrated human insulin
indicated to improve GC, and
indicated in adults and children with DM requiring more than 200 units of insulin per day.
The effect of patient age on the PK and PD of U-500R has not been studied. In geriatric patients, caution should be exercised when administering U-500R. In elderly patients with diabetes, to avoid hypoglycemia, be conservative with
dose increments, and
In children, there are no well-controlled studies of use of U-500R. Standard precautions as applied to use of U-500R in adults are appropriate for therapy in children, and the dosage of U-500R in pediatric patients must be individualized based on metabolic needs and results of frequent monitoring of BG.
