[IP] U500 insulin



U500 insulin is REGULAR insulin, not a fast acting analog. You need to take 
this into account when bolusing, as the timing is that of regular. I had a 
 patient who used U500 in her pump for basals, and injected an analog pre meal
as
bolus. U500 can also cause prolonged lows, so be aware of this.
