Yes, Velosulin is like regular, only with the addition of buffers, so for
reasonable post prandial BG, you need to bolus at least 30 min ahead of

When I used Velosulin, I used a more aggressive ratio, say 1unit of insulin
to 10 gm of carb, at breakfast. After about 10 am, I used a different ratio
of 1:12 for the rest of the day. That took care of the insulin resistance
that is so common in the morning. The difference between the 2 ratios was
usually by 2 gm of carb.

With Humalog, I can use the same ratio, throughout the day.
