      Uses and Benefits

      Uses and Benefits

      Apidra 100IU 10ML injection is a fast-acting variant of insulin used to treat diabetes mellitus type 1 (condition in which pancreas does not produce sufficient insulin to control blood glucose levels) and type-II (condition in which insulin produced by the body cannot be properly used by the cells to convert glucose into energy) in both adults and children.
