Re: [IP] Humalog, Meters, and Hello!


I was on a pump for many years and had difficulty controlling blood sugars
until I switched doctors and switched to Humalog. Blood sugars just (almost
magically) started falling into line. The only other thing I started doing
was walking briskly 10 minutes in the morning and 10 minutes in the evening.
I also did a review of matching carbs to insulin, but really found out that
I was already doing it reasonably well.

So, find yourself a doc who knows about Humalog and get it!!!!  I've started
feeling much better (in terms of headaches and energy) since using the
Humalog and being under much better control.  Pre-humalog, it would take
forever to treat a high blood sugar and would then result in a low blood
sugar (which then made me feel worse). Now, my blood sugar is rarely above

What region do you live in?
