This is the type of thing experienced by Lily. A few others on the
list have reported similar experiences. Bob B. reported some nite
time problems of this nature. I know he has tried mixing H/R but has
not yet said anything about the results
Mixing some R with the Humalog seems to solve the problem.
Lily uses 5/1 H/R (Velosulin actually) others use 4/1. I think I've
heard of a 1/1
The 5/1 mix seems to make very little difference in the initial onset
of absorbtion. The 20% tail (small peak) at 2-4 hours helps to match
digestion of most foods as well. Lily boluses 1/2 at start of meal
and 1/2 at end. This works well for all except pizza and equiv.
