Re: [IP] Causing your own Hypo



Having been diagnosed back when nothing was synthetic, I used insulin made
from beef and pork parts (and I don't want to know which ones) so that now
it takes longer for my body to absorb the humalog.  I always bolus before I
eat just like with shots.  I try to do it 20 to30 minutes before my meal.
