[IP] RE: buffered insulin by Novo

Otherwise known by the brand name "VelosulinBR", it was the only insulin
recommended for pump use a few years ago. My, how things have changed since
Humalog was introduced into pumping!  It used to be the STANDARD after Lilly
stopped making buffered Regular.
Anyway, the pre-meal bolus with V required a 20 to 30 minute wait before
eating to allow it to be absorbed into the blood stream. There are still a
few pumpers still using it, and even more who mix it with Humalog. Using
Regular and Humalog together isn't much different than mixing various ratios
of V and H.
