I have heard some people suggesting that IM injections speed up absorption of insulin for correction bolus, but after some experimentation, I haven’t noticed a measurably faster action. I did a little further reading, and most of the research i ran into suggests that the action of novolog/humalog is not consistently sped up by intramuscular injection.
So i was wondering if anyone has experience injecting small corrections intravenously. If so, i am interested in what sites, methods, and general guidance you might have. I know IV injection is not a normal way of administering insulin, but I am of a mind to think the fastest possible action is ideal for correction, to minimize unexpected interference with meal boluses.
