Apparently it is important that when mixing insulins that the carrier
fluid be the same so there are no interactions.
I would assume (bad... bad...) that Lilly's insulins have the same
carrier. A careful reading of their literature (it is on-line, link
on website) would probably confirm this. Since they show numerous
examples of mixing H with a variety of their other insulins it should
be OK to mix H with their R. I know from experience with Lily that
mixing H and Velosulin is OK.
