Nell replied to missarachnid's discussion 'Humalog not working?' in the group Minimed Paradigm Insulin Pump Users
"Many people are not concerned about air bubbles in tubing. Remember that the air bubble, if it advances, is going into tissue, not into your bloodstream. So there is no danger there. Second, there is about (note: about) half a unit of insulin in one…"

David Wheeler replied to missarachnid's discussion 'Humalog not working?' in the group Minimed Paradigm Insulin Pump Users
"When you inserted the new inset were there drops when you filled the tubing? That, to me, indicated the pump is working properly. Another possibility is how the tubing is fed from the pump to the inset. Sometimes my tubing becomes kinked but there…"

"If you've only been pumping for two weeks, are your basal and bolus rates accurately calculated and set? Normally I keep my insulin (now Novolog, previously Humalog) on my dresser once it's opened. I use approximately a vial per month, so…"

"I've had little bits of blood in the cannula with no problem. My first reaction, especially since the shot didn't work either, is, are you getting sick, or might you possibly have a hidden infection? Did you test for ketones? In addition,…"

Korrie replied to missarachnid's discussion 'Humalog not working?' in the group Minimed Paradigm Insulin Pump Users
"The insulin should be ok, I have kept mine out with no trouble. Did your sugars drop after injection? Do you always spike high after a site change? Reason I am asking, I have found that when I have run higher than normal sugars for an extended…"

Humalog not working?

I have had my insulin pump and been on Humalog for two weeks. I've had a few problems with blood in my cannula, so I changed my inset this morning because my BG has been between 220 and 300 since I changed it the night before. Since I changed my inset this morning my sugar has continued to be between 200 and 300. I got so fed up with the highs I decided to give my self a shot!

"Hi! I'm from Northwest Georgia. Both my little brother (dx 2008) and I (dx 1984) are type 1s. Its kind of weird, because he was adopted. My cousin has it and my grandma who passed away in the mid 80's had it."
