Re: [IP] Novolog vs Humalog

Is it true that those patients using the MiniMed pump benefit more from 
Novolog (a buffered insulin) in terms of longer lasting sites?  I was told 
that Disetronic users should see no improvement with Novolog because of D's 3 
minute delivery of basal insulin.  Because insulin (either Humolog or 
Novolog) is moving every 3 minutes it has no time to crystalize in the 
tubing.  In the MM pump, if Humolog is used, the insulin can crystalize and 
lose potency because of the longer time it spends in the tubing without
