Insulin detemir, a long-acting human insulin analog, is sold under the brand name LEVEMIR to improve glycemic control in adults and children with diabetes mellitus. Insulin detemir binds to the insulin receptor. Receptor-bound insulin lowers blood glucose by facilitating cellular uptake of glucose into skeletal muscle and adipose tissue and by inhibiting the output of glucose from the liver. The primary activity of insulin detemir is the regulation of glucose metabolism. Insulin detemir crosses the BBB and reduces food intake, it improves weight management by an enhanced and prolonged centrally mediated reduction of energy intake.
