[IP] Humalog action

Although everyone is different, the average activation for
the 60 patients Lilley's work had a slower activation.  If
you look in the insert from the Humalog package, it has an
activation of approximately 4 hours.  In 2 hours less than
50% of the initial injection has reached the bloodstream.


>>>Subject: Re: [IP] Glucometer

As an insulin injector of more than 40 years i have
difficulty in the idea
that Humalog takes 1 to 2 hours to be effective. My
understanding is that
its peak activity is within a maximum of 30 mins and that
when checking or
setting up afternoon basal levels 'Changing To Humalog?'
<http://www.diabetesnet.com/hmlgpmp.html> '...simply skip
lunch and skip the
bolus of Humalog ordinarily taken to cover it. I find with
injections that there is basically no real residual action
after two hours.
Am I missing the point?
