RE: [IPk] Actrapid

Hi June,
I'm under Ipswich Hospital in Sunny?? Suffolk.
 My consultant had decided before I got the pump that it wasn't going to work so
he didn't need much of an excuse to pull it.

I feel for you.  I have always been on Humalog on the pump.  I understand 
that Humalog acts quicker than Actrapid and more like the body's own 
insulin.  Surely we need the quickest possible insultins in a pump?  However 
don't quote me on any of this, I may be wrong but it may be worth finding 
the statistics.  I also thought this was why NICE recommended it.  I am sure 
someone else will come along and add to this and I hope you have grounds to 
get your pump back.  BTW, what hospital are you under where the consultant 
has this view?
