I don't know if it's a coincidence that I've had a harder time managing my diabetes since I switched to novolog...I am in no way blaming it because I know the bigger issue was me becoming more lax with my diet and not working out like I used to, but I've noticed these last 2 days have been a lot better for me. I haven't waited 15-20 min to eat; it seems to kick in right away whereas with novolog it seemed like I needed to wait a while for it to make a difference. But, I've also worked out 3 times this week, so I'm sure that helps a lot. I'll have to wait a while to see how my numbers are over the next few weeks, but it may be that humalog just works better for me. And if so, I want to kind of kick myself for ever using novolog!
I tried apidra once, but I don't remember how it worked for me. Now I'm curious what other people use and how it works for them. I never really thought about it until my insulin from the medical company finally ran out (as of last year, they no longer ship insulin). I didn't even think about having my endo write a prescription for insulin so that I could stockpile it, but oh well. My shipment lasted a long time, and when I was down to the last bottle, I decided to have my endo write an Rx for humalog.
This post is kind of boring, but I guess that's good sometimes. My numbers have been good, I worked out more this week than I have in months, and I am feeling a lot more positive! Nothing bad to report at the moment. :)
