Re: [IP] Re: advice on Apidra?



I am on Apidra.  It is faster.  I also take insulin after I eat because 
sometimes, I dont eat as much as planned. 


 My understanding could be in error because I switched when it first came out. I
believe it is free of zync and something else.  I am often allergic to fillers 
and other things in the meds.  My allergies in general have been better since 
switching to apidra but who knows for sure.  I also find it is a lot easier to 
turn around a low.

 Hope this helps,

Subject: [IP] Re: advice on Apidra?

Does anyone use the fast-acting insulin Apidra? Are there any major differences
 with Humalog or Novolog? I have been told it is faster acting than Humalog.
I've
been trying out a vial my endocrinologist gave me, though not in a scientific
manner (i.e., fasting and then taking a dose and eating a measurable amount of
food, and waiting to see how long it takes to affect my BG.) I'm not very good
at fasting!I'm about to travel for a month, and so it would be good to get the
best form of insulin.
Thanks for sharing any experience you may have.
best wishes,AliceSan Francisco
