I have a question about mixing insulins, and not in one and the same syringe of course.
I read in Scheiner t.ex. that sometimes NPH could be used better for covering high fat meals:
As for the long-term delayed rise caused by the fat itself, there are a couple of strategies that might work well. For those using injections, a small dose of NPH insulin given right after the meal usually provides just enough extra insulin to offset the delayed glucose rise for the next 4-10 hours. For those on a pump, an increase in the basal rate will accomplish the same thing. Try setting a temporary basal rate increase of approximately 50% for the next 6-10 hours, starting after the meal.
I know that Bernstein doesn't support NHP usage at all.
So I am curious, is it OK to use all sorts of insulin in order to maintain good control?
Levemir as basal,
Regular for bolus (if you low carb)
Novorapid (Apidra) for corrections
and NPH over the night if you munched on salmon and cheese i.e.fat meal :-)
Or it is totally crazy and mixing all sorts of insulins human not human insulins is not good at all?
