Re: [IP] New insulin from Lily

It follows the same deal as 70/30, which in my opinion was created for the
person in a long term care facility.  It is given twice a day by the staff
and the patient is given fixed meals and snacks.

It is also used for the person with less mental accuity at home.  While this
insulin may be beneficial to these situs, it isn't for pumpers and those of
a higher intelligence who have mastered the adjustments of carb counting and
insulin dosages.
