Re: [IP] Re: Humalog



Actually, Humalog not being "approved" for the pump is
LABELLING issue.  The FDA label does not include pump
use.  But, neither does it EXCLUDE it.  For whatever
reason, Lilly did not include use in a pump when they
submitted their paperwork for FDA approval.  Novolog
(Novo-Nordisk) DID include the pump in their
application.

It is similar to Paxil (an SSRI anti-depressant) being
used in children to treat depression, or Risperdol (an
anti-psychotic used to treat schizophrenia and other
neurological disorders such as autism).  Just because
the label doesn't INCLUDE children, it can STILL BE
USED to treat children.

Same as Humalog.  Just because it doesn't list
Pump-use on the label, doesn't meant it CANNOT be used
in a pump.

If your MD is prescribing Humalog for use in your pump
and you are pleased with your results - what is the
problem????
