Quick question for everyone that I can't seem to find the answer to, maybe my info hunting skills need an upgrade...but... Is a unit of insulin a unit of insulin? Meaning....
All things being equal, body chemistry aside, duration, time action begins, etc... Does a unit of lets say levimir, equal a unit of novolog in terms of ISF and or I/C ?
To further explain, if you take 20 units of levimir and it's "supposed" to last 24 hours, so 20 units divided by 24 hours gives you 0.83.
That 0.83 units of levimir an hour, is that the same as if you were to give yourself 0.83 units of novolog an hour (time of onset, duration, etc withstanding)... Will both have the same effect on BG correction and or offsetting carbs?
I hope I am making myself clear, this is the only way I can think to explain my question. Thank you in advance, I am so grateful to have these forums to help with questions and to learn from.
