Brian (bsc) replied to A Thorn in my Flesh's discussion 'Is it safe to mix Humalog and Humulin R?'
"Sadly, mixing Humalog and Humulin won't work. First, these are totally separate preparations, so even if they could be mixed, the end result would not be the combined action, rather it would be a distorted smudging of the action. But the real…"

"In my experience, the R/NPH regimen poses way to many challenge to effectively manage type 1D. NPH is one of the most un predictable insulin in use. It cannot provide the necessary basal insulin during the 24 hour day; therefore, your I:C ration…"
