San Francisco, Calif. – Eli Lilly and Company has decided to stop producing Humulin U and Humulin L Insulins. According to a letter to health care providers, use of these longer-acting insulins has declined by more than 70%
over the past five years due to newer insulin therapies. The company estimates less than 2% of diabetes patients in the U.S. will be affected by this discontinuation.
