Re: [IPk] some things the pump can't fix

I know people who routinely use intramuscular injections of Humalog to bring
down high BGs. In fact, I think it's Bernstein who actually recommends it -
I know someone does.
It seems like a good compromise, though personally I'm too squeamish! I gave
my own flu jab once - which has to be into the muscle - and it was horrible
doing it! Then again, the needles for that are much bigger.
