Re: [IPk] Glargine & Novorapid instead of pump



hi graham, i have been on glargine now since last august and on the whole
find it good, certainly much better than the insulartard i was taking.the
only thing i will say is i needed about 10 units more of the glargine than i
did of the previous insulin which my doc hadnt told me.but once i had got
that sorted night time hypos are almost non existantand so are morning highs

Hi everybody,

Perhaps a pump gets ever closer. Or perhaps I am now on the 3rd way.

Earlier this week I spent some time at my Diabetes centre. After much
discussion with the Specialist nurse there I decided to change to a lantus
regime, using Glargine and Novorapid. The nurse doesn't think it will be
100%
ideal for me, but it might work out. Her main reason for suggesting I try it
is
that the Scottish Drugs Consortium have apparently added a rider to the NICE
recommendations, and stated that a pump and consumables can be provided on
the
NHS if someone cannot get their fasting blood sugars below 6.5. We'll see.

In the meantime I would be grateful for any tips any of you who have used
Glargine and/or Novorapid might have (I'm injecting the Glargine at around
10:30pm.

Thanks,


Graham
