Figuring out the insurance company... Anyway, when I used a pump I needed more insulin than now on MDI, because the pump, tubing, etc. does waste some insulin. Still, I appreciated getting two vials rather than one monthly because my Apidra often only lasts 24 days or so rather than a month. Apidra is temperature sensitive, so I figure that somewhere along the line before it gets to me, it gets damaged and loses potency. A perfect bottle of Apidra is just exactly what I need. The insurance company doesn't take damaged bottles into account; what's more, they really, really want me to get Novolog. I can live with Novolog, but it just doesn't work as well as Apidra with my peculiar digestion. In time, if I run out of Apidra on this new regime, I suppose I'll have to switch to Novolog, which does last a month.
I agree: I also hate worrying about all this stuff.
