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

Yes Pat, I had a terrible time with the switch with higher numbers and irregular curves and had to return to the Novalin N and things are definately better. It will be interesting to see if more and more have this problem. It is supposed to be the same but after 3 months of trying everything to figure it out I was done and now back to Novolin. Back to reads between 100 to 264. Good Luck, Norma Jean
