[IPk] Apidra?



Does anyone out there use Apidra in their insulin pump? I changed from 
Humalog (to which I had become sensitive at the insertion site), but Apidra 
behaves differently, and I'm not getting on with it very well. Anyone got 
any observations, tips or hints as to how to handle Apidra in a pump?
