[[Mixed insulins]] cover a wide range as they can be [[:Category:Origin|animal]] origin, [[r-DNA/GE/GM]] origin or [[analog]] insulins. The non-analog mixed insulins are made up of [[:Category:Intermediate-acting|intermediate-acting]] [[NPH]]/isophane insulin and [[:Category:Short-acting|short-acting]] [[R]]/neutral. normal insulin. The analog mixes are made from [[:Category:Intermediate-acting|intermediate-acting]] protamine-suspended analog insulin (suspended similar to NPH/isophane insulin) and [[:Category:Fast-acting|fast-acting]] analog insulin. They can also vary in the fraction (amount or percent) of the two types (R/neutral and NPH/isophane) of insulin used to make a non-analog mix, and in the percentage of fast/rapid-acting analog insulin and slower-acting protamine suspended analog insulin.

For some reason, those in the US choose to list the slower, NPH/isophane based insulin fraction first, such as Humulin or Novolin 70/30. The rest of the world gives the faster insulin top billing and the result is 30/70. Regardless of how this is written, it means that the insulin is made up of 70% NPH/isophane insulin and 30% R/neutral insulin.

The most common mixes are 70/30 (30/70) (non analog) or 75/25 (25/75) (analog). There are no currently-marketed mixes which combine insulins of different origins. Eli Lilly's form of beef/pork [[Iletin]] and Novo Nordisk's Lentard were discontinued some time ago. Here are the most common ones that could cause confusion:
