Nothing unusual happened on Friday to cause the lower reading. That has been the pattern with the Humulin. Running way too high and then throwing an unexpected low. After giving him the novolin at...

Re: Humulin vs. Novolin N causing lows - anyone else?

I'm still having big problems with the switch, but I'm using 70 units a day and cannot afford $70 a vial for the novolin N. It's been a year and a half and I feel like I'm back at square one. Pat

Re: Taylor - Road to Regulation
