I spent many years on Humalog and never had an A1C higher than 7; usually it was 6.2 or 6.3, and sometimes dropped down into the magic 5 realm. But the downside - which really became clear when I started using a Dexcom six months ago - was many many nighttime lows. So I did some research and discovered that Apidra has a shorter "tail" - i.e. stops acting earlier after a shot - so I asked my endo to put me on it. Well! Just got my A1C results: 7.5! It was 6.3 three months ago. Yikes. No more infidelity for me: I'm back with Humalog, my first love, and will never stray from the path again.
i just started with Humalog fast acting last month so i am still waiting to do an a1c with it... but my daily numbers seem great and i'm guess my a1c will coincide with your results. i shoot it with, before or after meals... and any other times i get over 120-130... sometimes i find with Humalog it that less is more... usually i take 1 unit for every 10 degrees of blood sugar over 100, that usually puts me between 80 and 100 unless i exercise a lot. i also halved my Glucaphage to 500 2x day. i always check right before bedtime. and try not to eat or drink anything that in the evening that raises my blood sugar. this usually consists of a slice of cheese, a bit of almond or a cup of stevia-ed almond milk. i haven't had a low in a while, last time i did i'd eaten something crazy for dinner or in the evening and wound up double dosing to bring myself down, don't know what it was i ate but i learned then to keep away from carby food anywhere from dinner on... that's my experience so far, don't know if any of what i say pertains to you, and maybe you have something to tell me... all the best ~m
