Hi    My name Paul Stone. I am 52 years old and I have had diabetes for 38 
yrs. I would like very much to tryroline an insulin pump. However presently
I am 
on "Pork" animal insulin, and I don't know if that would work well in an 
insulin pump. I have tried to change to Lilly's Humilin and Humalog 
insulin's, but they don't seem to set well with me. When Novo releases it's 
Novolog insulin I would like to try it. In the mean time I would like to 
find out as much information about using Pork insulin in an pump as I can. 
I would like to chat with someone who may be using Pork insulin in a pump 
or possibly someone who may have had good results using Novo's insulin's 
who couldn't tolerate Lilly's (human) brand insulins.

------------------------------

But,Novolog is not animal insulin. It is LillyHumulog repacked by
NovoNordisk AS under a license from Lilly Humulog must be made by r-DNA
technologu because it derives its speed of action from a flip of lysine and
Proline On the B Peptide Chain of insulin. The body and other mammals make
insulin without this flip. Soon Lilly willno longer produce any animal
insulin and I suppose this is a wise decision considering the possibility
of retrovirus infections. Talk to your doc about transitioning to human
insulin from pork it can be done but it aint easy. spot
