"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…"

"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"

"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.""

"I've experimented with all three in my Omnipod. I agree with David - Apidra seems to be the most sensitive. I found it lost it's efficacy in my pump by day 2. Novolog maintained it's efficacy for the full 3 day Ominipod lifecycle, but…"

"The answer to the question, as with most things related to diabetes, is "it depends". Each physiology is unique. In theory, any U-100 insulin should lower blood glucose by the same amount. In practice, it doesn't always work that way.…"

"Novolog® is probably the best all-around pump insulin when looking at all of the factors including stability in the reservoir, they are all U100 so there ability to lower your BG so many points per unit is the same. I pump Humalog®, but if…"

Seeking Opinions about Using Humalog, Novolog, or Apidra in the Pump

Hi there,I'm diagnosed with type 1, but I've been using Humulin-R in my pump (the U-500 strength) for the past four years. I suppose you could say I had "double diabetes" until I had bariatric surgery two weeks ago as I had significant resistance to the insulin I was pumping (and injecting prior to getting on the pump). I am no longer in need of the concentrated insulin and am seeing my endocrinologist next Friday to discuss switching to one of the fast acting mealtime insulins (Humalog,…See More
