Pure Velosulin is a regular insulin. It peaks in about 4 hours as 
opposed to Humalog's 2. Typically this means that basal rates need to 
start about an hour earlier than they do from Humalog, and of course, 
meal boluses must be done in advance as with regular+MDI. When using 
Velosulin in a mix with Humalog where it only represents 15-20% of 
the insulin, the timing is about the same as straight Humalog from 
our experience.
