Re: [IP] velosulin ratios

> How do you know if it's worth it?

I don't know, but I plan to do a week of V starting this weekend in Atlanta
to see if it works and if it does then I'll try a mix. I finally tried my
first micro and while the first one went bad after a bolus, the one in now
has lasted 3 boluses (of btwn 2-4 units) and 18 hours, a record for my sites
recently. It's sore already tho but I am not going to move it as it's still
working, it's just an annoyed site. It only burns for about an hour after a
bolus and when I move certain ways. After three hours, the site stops aching
completely. I need to try something though. I want to find what works, I
can't keep poking myself with sets nearly as much as I did on MDI and need
to be able to use belly sites without sites going bad in 8 hours. I had the
same problems with injection sites when on MDI, mind you. My endos also
anti-V, so I'm going to buy a vial outright and if it works, hopefully,
he'll agree to give me a Rx. I am changing endos at months end and hopefully
if it works, the new one will be more receptive to mixing. Wish me luck!
