see you have a lot of question and not all can be answered with the minimum information given by you. but i can tell tell you about 2 different kinds of insulin. see insulin preparation are broadlly divided into 1. short acting 2. intermediate acting 3. long acting. every type has got a different onset of action duration of action and peak effect. ideally a diabetic pt has to be kept euglycaemic at all times so inorder to avoid glucose surges esp after meals or episodes of hypoglycaemia esp during night 2 different types are used so that we can get best of both the types and avoid the complications. if you want a more detailed explanation feel free to ask
