Re: [IP] iv correction bolus

humalog was not designed for iv use and injecting it directly into the blood 
stream that is what you are doing, reg insulin is the only insulin that can 
be given directly in to the blood stream
beware of anyone doing this is takes much less insulin this way and is 
usually given with a bolus of fluid over a certain period of time so the 
brain doesn't swell and cause a coma
before any one does this i recommend that they personally check with their dr.
