Italian term or phrase: insulina pronta, lenta ultralenta
Ho trovato ready, lente ultra-lente e fast, ma mi piacerebbe avere una conferma.
Anche slow release potrebbe andare per "lenta"?

Fast-acting or regular (this insulin can be given via IV)
Explanation:
... lente insuline; ultralente (both are long-acting, not slow-acting)

You also have NPH insuline, which is the intermediate-acting variant.

These non-fast insulines are given subcutaneously.

Buon lavoro

lispro


Explanation:
lente = slow release
ultra-lente = ultra-slow release
pronto = fast acting

There are several types of fast-acting, the newest of which is lispro, a humalog insulin manufactured by Lilly of rDNA origin

the usual fast acting insuling is called
"regular" or "Toronto" in English

lispro is faster (about 2 x) than Toronto

but everything has a "reverse side", the actual time it is effective is also shorter (this rules applies more or less to all the different types of insulin)

As a diabetic for many years, I have used them all and now use 3 different types, Toronto, lispro and ultra-lente.
