Re: [IPk] Pork insulin/ novorapid



Dear Paul, I'm really surprised. It is now considered best practice to use
human insulin as the default, standard issue, analogue insulins (that is,
human insulin with slight modifications to make them work faster) as an
alternative to improve control, and animal insulins such as pork insulin
only in very exceptional circumstances. These animal insulins have a
downside, so that when human insulin became available, all insulin users
with few exceptions were changed over immediately!

Perhaps you should ask about human insulin first.
