Diabetes is increasingly becoming a common health threat for Iranians, in particular children. Currently, 10% of all people suffering from diabetes in the country are children, said Ali Rabbani, head of Tehran University of Medical Sciences (TUMS) Children Medical Center and pediatric endocrinologist, on the sidelines of the one-day unveiling and introduction ceremony of a new insulin pen, ‘levemir,’ on Friday at Azadi Hotel in Tehran. The insulin starts to work several hours after injection and keeps working evenly for 24 hours. The insulin pen which has been approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) will be distributed to all drugstores across the country in the near future, IRNA reported.
