I'm 27 and have been a type 1 for almost 11 years! (this June) I was recently told by insurance that my fast acting insulin Novolog is no longer a preferred medication and by April will not be covered at all. I was suggested to switch to Humalog. Is there a big difference between the two? I've been on Novolog and Lantus for the entire time i've been diabetic so i'm apprehensive about switching but I cannot afford the Novolog now, so I don't really have a choice. I'd just like to know what I'm getting myself into or if anyone has suggestions for me!?
Novolog: sliding scale: 1 unit per 4 carbs.
Lantus: 37 units daily.
