Lyumjev Warnings/Precautions


Instruct patients on proper administration of insulin, check insulin label before each injection, and management of hypoglycemia. Do not share pens or cartridges between patients, or needles and syringes when using vials, even if the needle is changed. Visual impairment: will need assistance with prefilled pens. Do not inject into areas of lipodystrophy or localized cutaneous amyloidosis. Increased risk of hyper- or hypoglycemia if changes in physical activity, meal patterns, concomitant medications, renal or hepatic function, insulin regimen, administration site, and if acute illness occurs: monitor glucose more frequently and may need to adjust dose. Monitor potassium levels in patients at risk for hypokalemia (eg, concomitant K+-lowering or K+-sensitive drugs). Discontinue if hypersensitivity reactions occur. Insulin pump device malfunction: may cause hyperglycemia, ketoacidosis; have interim SC inj or alternative insulin therapy available. Pregnancy. Nursing mothers.
