[IP] Humalog versus Regular insulin profile



I keep seeing posts about the profile of Humalog versus Regular insulin. I'm
concerned at the number of posts that say Humalog peaks in 2 hours. If you
want to see the profile of regular insulin, the Lilly page is:
    http://www.lilly.com/diabetes/ref_manual/insulin_r.html

the summary for Regular is:
                                 Maximum
Insulin     Onset(h)   Peak(h)   Duration(h)
- From email @ redacted Thu Oct 1 22:30:11 1998--------------
Regular     0.5-1.0      2-3        4-6

The profile for Humalog can be found at:
    http://www.lilly.com/diabetes/ref_manual/humalog.html?yes

and the summary for that is:
                                 Maximum
Insulin     Onset(h)   Peak(h)   Duration(h)
