Re: [IPk] fun night



No way, Michael!
that's half the point of Humalog - it's out of your system far quicker than Regular.
Take a look at any of the insulin duration charts.
For me it's gone in 4 hours probably less.
Regular would stay at least 6.
Of course, for your daughter it may be different.
