I was wondering if it would indeed help me any.
My 1st phase insulin release is nearly non existent. But 2nd phase seems OK most of the time.
Currently, I am using Humalog Kwikpen. Sometimes I take 10 units, other times I need 30 units (sheesh).
I split the dose as much as I can. Like 5units at one site, 5 another, but at the same time for the same meal. Faster absorption that way.
Does Symlin increase the effectiveness of insulin?
What are the pro's and cons, short version please?
Typical dosages, times, carb coverages, effectiveness with exercise, etc would be great!
I see my endo here in about 7 weeks. My last A1C was 5.1, but due to illness, injury, and bad weather, my next one should be nearer to 6.0 - sigh...
I tried Victoza - that was a disaster. No help for the 2 hr PP, and it made me go LOW after that.
Thanks for any help, experiences, and any insight.
PS sometimes I need my ISF to be 1:5, other times, 1:15. My lifestyle is far too random to predict any anticipated insulin usage.
Most of the time, I have a good guess.
