There are TWO main manufacturers, Eli Lilly and Novo Nordisk. Both companies make excellent products. ALL of the insulins are verified by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA). ANY of them, as recommended by your doctor, will be EXCELLENT.
There ARE, though, different TYPES of Insulin: Humulin, Humalog, Novalin, Novalog, Humulin-R, 70/30, NOH, and "insulin glarganine" like Lantus, Lente, and Ultralente. each TYPE has a specific purpose and reaction in the body, so you MUST use the correct type type as recommend by the doctor.
if you want to use a different manufacturer, then you MUST consult with your doctor and get a new prescription, since each different TYPE works slightly differently.
Simply put, YOU DO NOT get to choose what insulin you use. THE DOCTOR does that.

Life style is often part of the issue. Life style changes now could delay or prevent you from getting diabetes later. Learn here https://tr.im/5yEBx
What you eat is not actually the cause of diabetes, but how you live can be. If you sit on the couch all day, your chances of developing diabetes goes up greatly.
Just do the best you can to not gain weight and to maintain an active life style and that will greatly help reduce some of your risks.

There is no "best insulin trademark", my friend. All insulins MUST, by law, have proven their safety record before being allowed to be sold.
