Thank you for your query on Healthcare Magic,
Novolin N Insulin:

The onset of action is : 1-1.5 hours, so it starts to take effect within this duration.

Peak : 4-12 hour

Duration : up to 24 hours.

This is a general information about Novolin N insulin , but the actual time may vary depending on the clinical parameters of an individual.

So I advise you to take the required complete information from her treating Physician.

Hope I have answered your query, if you have any clarification please let me know.
