What is Apidra?

Apidra (insulin glulisine) is a hormone that is produced in the body. It works by lowering levels of glucose (sugar) in the blood. It is a faster-acting form of insulin than regular human insulin. Apidra is used to treat type 1 (insulin-dependent) diabetes in adults and children who are at least 4 years old. It is usually given together with another long-acting insulin.
