Doesn't changing the set that often run into a lot of money?  Would it
not be easier to go back to regular and have longer time with each set. 
I haven't tried Humalog, I have been on Velosulin and Humulin BR before
that and haven't had any trouble.  I regularly get 4 to 5 days out of a
set without experiencing highs.  I have gone as long a 7 days but that
was by accident and I only changed then because the site started to get
sore.  Just a thought.  I like the results I get with velosulin.
