The charts on the about page are based on the above. The result of using the above mix when you think you are using something with more H and less V would probably be a higher than expected post-prandial bg followed by a lower than expected bg several hours later. See the graph at: http://www.insulin-pumpers.org/images/hr_graph.gif on this graph you have more V (blue) than you intended and less H(red) The graph may be accessed again by going to the LINKS page of the site in the Humalog section and clicking on: http://www.insulin-pumpers.org/links.shtml "Humalogr/Humulin R insulin level curves" shows difference from Humalogr to Regular insulin The response of V is very similar to Humulin R email @ redacted ---------------------------------------------------------- for HELP or to subscribe/unsubscribe, contact: HELP@insulin-pumpers.org send a DONATION http://www.Insulin-Pumpers.org/donate.shtml
