"May I ask how many grams of protein you might usually get (before the attempts to increase how much you are eating)? Also -- what types of protein are you trying to add to your diet? Do you consume dairy? Is it milk that's giving you problems?…"

"Hi. I'm type 1 and recently had RNY (August of 2014). I was diagnosed with diabetes at age 31 (nearly 10 years ago) and was, at first, told I was type 2 (due to my weight). I was immediately started on insulin, though, lantus and Humalog then,…"

Kelly replied to catendo's discussion 'Seeking Opinions about Using Humalog, Novolog, or Apidra in the Pump'
"Apidra is the fastest-acting. I can bolus mid-meal so I don't end up having to eat the whole meal just because I bolused for the whole meal."

"Hi Melissa, Did the study indicate a particular amount of whey protein consumed before meals in the test subjects that made the difference in post-meal blood glucose readings? I'm interested in learning more about this study. I recently had…"

"What a happy day! I was finally switched from U-500 Humulin-R to Novolog early this afternoon! I'm so stinking excited about this it's ridiculous! The NP at my endo's office said it is definitely time to make the switch (I was pumping…"

"Ha! I just realized there is a huge typo in my reply to you all. I meant to say I'm going around saying I'm *not* high?! I'm so used to saying I *am* high that I think I just automatically typed in what I used to say so frequently. I…"

Susan Van Abs replied to catendo's discussion 'Seeking Opinions about Using Humalog, Novolog, or Apidra in the Pump'
"I have had no luck with Apidra. I've been pumping Novolog for about 14 years and have never had a problem. Humalog gave me site issues, although I injected it fine for years. Best wishes and let us know how everything goes. Susan"

catendo replied to catendo's discussion 'Seeking Opinions about Using Humalog, Novolog, or Apidra in the Pump'
"Thank you all so very much! I appreciate your input. I was pretty sure that the answer would be that we're all different and have different needs and requirements, so it may take some experimenting to find my right insulin choice. I have been…"

"I use novolog, it has been very stable for me. I have been pumping for over a year now and so far no occlusions. I will load the full amount in my tslim and run till empty. For me that is about 7-10 days depending on how carb heavy I go. Have never…"

". . . and there you go. Only way to know for sure what works is to try different things. Someone (not me) said "If you want to treat diabetes by the book, you need a different book for each diabetic.""
