Carol replied to Stuart's discussion 'Yes or No: cured in your lifetime?'
"No, I really don't believe so. Still, I'm amazed at all the negative answers. My pet peeve is all the money spent on research that goes nowhere. Surely medical research is a cash cow that is totally unregulated. Look at all the pink in…"

Carol replied to taximom's discussion 'Lantus Help'
"I've been on a pump for 19 years, so I'm here to say that I have had problems with analogs as a basal rate since they first came out. They seem to work for me for 3-5 months, then turn to water. When that happens, I switch back to regular…"

Carol replied to Maria's discussion 'any experience with progesterone cream?'
"I also seem to have terrible insulin resistance, which seems hormonally driven, but then I put regular insulin, instead of an analog in the pump and see my blood sugars come down immediately. I still may take novolog at meals, but I wonder if…"

trouble with novolog in pump

Posted on February 3, 2010 at 1:30pm 4 Comments

I have trouble with novolog in my pump as a basal rate. I can rock along for about 3 months or so, then my blood sugars will start to rise. Sometimes this coincides with ovulation, sometimes with serious redness around the tape area of my site (as if its an allergy). The more I raise my basals, the higher my sugars seem to go. A bolus will bring it down but not for long. Changing the site helps for about 24 hours, then high sugars again. Changing bottles doesn't help. If I take Novolog out of… Continue
