[IP] Insulin bumps and lumps



 Jan wrote about the lumps and bumps from old Insulin
To a large extent with genetically engineered insulin we don't get those
lumps anymore. Many of those problems were caused by the proInsulin and
c-peptide present in the animal origin insulin's. rDNA insulin has no
ProInsulin and no significant c-peptide. And it doesn't itch like the old
pork-beef ones did and make those big hives. Of course there is a whole
culture of DMers that want the insulin of yesteryear brought back, including
my Texas cousin who says it works better, she's the same one who is afraid
of Humulog.
