Re: [IPk] Apidra

Hi Sue

I've been on Apidra for over a year after starting off with actrapid in my 
pump - I would have to honestly say that I did not notice any difference ( 

It certainly doesn't seem to work much faster for me ( though that could 
just be me!)

I thought that it would be good for bringing my bloods down much faster - 
don't often go hyper - but it can still take hours.

HbA1 before pump - 7.2
HbA1 on Actrapid - 6.4

Last HbA1 on Apidra - 5.9 ( but that could just be because I'm better at 
making adjustiments to my pump now)
