Re[IP] .1 basal and diluting humalog

U 40 insulin is not approved for pump use.
Barbara B.

<<Okay, I've never actually used U-40 Insulin but the 
IMPRESSION I get is that takes 2.5ml of U-40 to equal 
the potency of 1ml of U-100 (hence the names U-40 == 
40units per ml, U-100 == 100units per ml)...
ASSUMING this is correct for the moment... couldn't you 
get the same kind of dilution (well nearly the same 
anyway) by simply switching from U-100 to U-40 and 
setting the pump for .1u/hr (which since I believe all 
the pumps are adjustable for U-40 or U-100 will simply 
get read by the machine as "0.0025ml/hr")
If I'm interpreting the meanings of U-40 vs. U-100 then 
someone PLEASE correct me.>>
