Is it possible to become resistant to a particular insulin over time? I know with some medications you have to either start taking more or switch to another brand after you have been taking it for a long time. I’m just wondering if insulin is the same way.
I’ve been on Humalog for over 10 years. I think I started on Humalog when I started on the pump. Now my sugar seems to be high all the time. I read somewhere that Apidra was a good one to use in a pump. I’m trying to get the doctor’s office on the phone to ask if they could give me a bottle to try. I have an appointment in about 3 weeks and we could talk about my results with it if I could just get my hands on a bottle.
There could be so many reasons why this is happening. The problem is trying to figure out what is the cause. It could be the insulin. It could be that all the sudden ALL my basal settings are wrong (doubt it…but hey you never know). Could be that after 40 years of D I’ve just built up scar tissue. My insulin to carb ratio might be wrong. The list just seems to go on and on. But if I eat anything even if it’s low carb my bg is in the 200’s for 3 or 4 hours. Or I start trying to make corrections and then it goes low. I’m tired of chasing this creature.
