 Not to be confused with (we hope) the degradation that some people experience
with
 Humalog insulin due to an undefined problem. There are those of us who
experience no
 problems with injected Humalog, but do develop site intollerance for infused
Humalog.
 YMMV, so check with your CDE or other medical specialists, like the 4,000+
