I think the issue is that if you give 10 units of humalog vs. 10 units
of regular or lente, or ultralente, the humalog has much more potential
for being dangerous than the others.

Also, the diabetic eye specialist that checks my eyes says that diabetic
retinopathy occurs more often in patients that have lots of rapid
glucose swings.  Given the ability to quickly swing down from a high you
don't want, humalog is considered by many diabetic specialists as more
dangerous than regular.
