What do you mean by "differently". For others that have noted 
sensitivity to a particular insulin-analog, the most common 
difference is an apparent increase in insulin sensitivity and 
concurrent decrease in TDD. My daughter's was about 30% when she 
switched from Humalog to Novo-Rapid (Novolog in the US). I have read 
others report similar changes of 10 - 35% but not specifically with 
Apidra though I would expect that the changes might be similar.
