I recently, in January, switched from Novolog to Apidra.... I switched because Novolog wasn't really working for me well- pumping over 120u a day, Apidra's been great... I'm down to 65-80u of it a day, but my endo and I are thinking I'm allergic to it as I keep getting super infected sites if I don't change them daily. Has anyone else had this problem? I added a picture of what my sites look like after a day, you don't want to see one that's been in the full time.... it's gross! Oh, and I'm pretty sure it's an allergy and not something like MRSA because it's still happening on antibiotics that my endo wrote for the first one. The weirdest part about the sites is that they remain hard and raised, about the size of a half dollar, for 2 weeks afterwards...
I'm at my wits end with this issue... I'm willing to change out my site daily, but that just seems to be a temporary fix. Humalog and Novolog are both out due to the non-sensitivity issue. I have an endo appointment on Friday, but I can email her if I need anything beforehand. I don't think it's the sets themselves that I'm using as I've never had an issue with them before- MM quicksets 6mm's, but at this point, I'm willing to try any suggestion!
