I started using Humalog about 12 months ago as a supplementary insulin,
while on MDI using Pork Actrapid as my regular insulin. I would take
just a couple of units of Humalog to skim the top off a high bg. And
wham!!! within ten minutes it would give me a wonderful rush as if some
weight was being lifted from me. A sort of legal high. And the bg came
down quickly as well.
I can't say if it works slower now - not sure, since my opinion of
what's good and bad has changed so much - but since I'm on it all the
time, I no longer get that wondeful rush. I suspect I've simply grown
used to feeling great, so don't notice it any more.
