Regarding Alan's comment of October 18 and using Apidra , wanting a
half-unit Insulin Pen.
I asked the Rep , Ken Geldart at CDA/CSEM Professional Conference and Annual Meetings , Oct. 21 and he mentioned , that this is worked on . I understood, there are about 39 parts in the pen and lots of studies are part of the process prior to launching the product . He did say , that it certainly will not hurt to write sanofi aventis as Alan suggested ( ps I added an 8 here to the postal code and I can supply Ken's e-mail
address)

I think that the Glucometer that I had in the early 80's ?? was also an Ames Glucometer. If I remember right, I opened the back of the Glucometer and moved a jumper to convert it to mmol/L. I think that the doctor I saw back then changed to mmol/L as soon as it was changed here, and so, I also changed. I can not be sure though as I did not save any of the records, and I used the test strips with the diastix more often than poking my finger. (Levels were Trace to 4+) so you did not have to worry about Metric or SI units. SI units were adopted for all measurement in 1982.

Wow...seems like we in Canada have been immersed in Metric for such a long time...I can't think in any other way...except when it comes to weight, because my scales are marked metric and imperial. Whenever I post here I tu, with some form of measurement...I always have to google it first in order to get the equation correct!
I was formally dx after the switch over (2006)...so I know nothing else! Sorry!!

Welcome Heather!

Comment by Heather-E on October 10, 2010 at 11:38am
Thanks Alan :) I haven't used syringes before so will try and get the pens first - noting down their names now and will get my Pharmacist to order them for me :)
Comment by Heather-E on October 9, 2010 at 9:26pm
Hey I am starting my pump Tuesday and as part of that my insulin has been changed from Humulin N & Humalog to Novorapid with Lantus for backup. The cartridges I got from the pharmacy in case I have pump problems look kind of similar to the ones I currently use but will they fit my current pens? Or do I need to somehow get new pens??
