Re: [IP] Mixing Insulins



I saw a CDE at Kaiser this year.  She mixes 1:1 R:H ratio.  I've heard of
everything from that to 1:5.  I think what matters is that you think in terms of
the ratio you've got (the action time mix of the insulins).  She didn't specifiy
why those numbers.  Only that it worked best for her.
