So I have been learning a lot about Apidra and its ability to reduce the post meal spike/quick action time.
I have heard both good and bad things about it. My main concern is that it can not remain unrefrigerated for any period of time.
I go through a lot of insulin as a big girl. I can go through 200 units in a few days no problem, but my big stickler is that I always ALWAYS have a bottle of insulin unrefrigerated on me. At ALL times. I carry this because a) I may need a back up shot, b)I may run out of insulin and c)it keeps me alive so in case of any sort of emergency I always want some on me. A bottle of 10ml usually lasts me mayyyyyybe 3 weeks. Is this too long? I know the label says its too long, but is it actually too long?
Likewise, do any of my pumping pals use Symlin? I have heard good things from some T2s, but I wonder what its effect on T1 pumper would be?
I am trying to arm myself with lots of info before I beg and plead for the diabetes clinic to see me in the new year.
I will have approximately 15 minutes to present my findings and get an endocrinologist to believe me when I present these findings, so give me your best shot.
Any other meds or endo endorsed supplements that help make you feel more in control of your Diabetes?
Let me know!
