What is insulin aspart?
Insulin aspart is a fast-acting form of insulin used for the treatment of type 1 diabetes. It is also used for the treatment of type 2 diabetes. Insulin aspart starts working faster than other forms of insulin injections but does not last as long. Because of this, it is regularly prescribed with a form of longer-acting insulin.
Insulin aspart is administered as a subcutaneous injection (a shot given just below the skin) to lower blood sugar levels. In addition to being available in its generic form, insulin aspart is available under the brand names NovoLog and Fiasp.
