Switching Humalog to Novorapid

Postby Kezza » Tue Mar 20, 2018 7:39 pm

Hi everyone, my endo has suggested I switch to Novorapid from Humalog as apparently it's more common to use Novorapid in pumps. She says there will be no change in dosage etc. but I am a bit dubious. Does anyone have experience switching in either direction? Did you find your basals, carb ratio, or duration of insulin action changed? Thanks.
Ever tried to send a text message with your pump? It doesn't work!

To the best of my knowledge they are basically the same ...dunno if you really need to switch unless the pump is having problems with the Humalog

I switched from novolog to humalog because of the same argument!!

Didn't notice a difference, but I imagine it'd be different for everyone.

Just saw this, thanks good to know it goes both ways, can't help wondering if it's just individual endo's preferences....

I asked my endo about this on Monday. She said that there was no, or very little, difference so there was no need for switching.
