Insulin analogues and preparations mnemonic

Short acting insulin mnemonic:
"NO LAG"
Novalog
Lispro (Humalog)
Aspart (Novalog)
Glusiline
Alternatively, "NO LAGgeRS" mnemonic includes:
Regular insulin
Semilente

Intermediate acting insulin mnemonic:
"I am Intermediate, NAH?"

Isophane (NPH)
Also, I looks like a L for lente.

Long acting insulin mnemonic:
"Plez Gladly take Ultra Long to Deteriorate."

Protamine zinc insulin
Glargine
Ultralente
Detemir
"Detemir doesn't deteriorate."
Takes a long time to degrade - long acting.

That's all!
Exams going on. Uploaded rough draft for you to refer.
Hope it helped.
