There are several different types of insulin-like Rapid-acting injections that take less time to show effect i.e within 5 to 15 minutes but lasts for a shorter time period of 3 to 5 hours, Short-acting injections take 30 minutes and 1 hour  time to show effect and last for 6 to 8 hours. Intermediate-acting injections that take about 1 to 4 hours to show effect and it last for 10 to 26 hours, Long-acting injections show effect after 1 or 2 hours and it last for between 14 and 24 hours.
