Re: [IPu] help needed - insulin not working?



Hi Vanessa   yes I had the same problem after pumping with Humalog for over 
5 years. The pain got worse and worse on bolas delivery and sites not even 
lasting 12 hours. Big hard lumps around the site.
I was thinking I was going to have to go off the pump but then my Dr changed 
me to novo rapid and this solved the problem.

Regards  Helen.
