Hi Shelly.
I see your picture of Regular Insulin and NPH insulin. Are these what you use??

If so, do you fill the syringe with NPH first then the regular insulin, or the other way around?

Sometimes I get better results from plain old regular insulin than the analog humalog.

I also see you liked some of the pictures I posted.
What interested you in each of them?
