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

With Mildred it was as simple as a slight reduction in her insulin dose when I switched her over to Humulin N.
And, I can not even say for sure it was the insulin and not just her body ready for a change, and in this case, a reduction in insulin.
Her great numbers continue now on Humulin N.

A friend of mine who is a homeopathic doctor and who teaches diabetes awareness and education, who has a recently diagnosed dog herself, suggests that if there were any significant difference between Humulin N and Novolin N they would not both be NPH insulin.
