Re: [IP] Novolog vs Humalog

I debated the switch to novalog because of the problems that I had with
Lilly's regular insulin and the little tails kicking out insulin at
inopportune times. I am doing quite well with the novalog especially now
that it is very warm here in Michigan. My sites always look good even on the
third day and so have my sugars on the third day. I have no problems with my
insurance paying for insulin - I have blue cross blue shield. Happy pumping.
