Extra pokes and cost aside, is there anything I should be concerned about when transitioning from Lantus to Humulin N? I wouldn't switch if I still had insurance. Lantus is so expensive!
I think this might be more my (maybe) not fully understanding how it all works, but if I currently take 40 units of Lantus a day, would it be comparable to 40 units of Humulin twice a day, or 20 units twice a day? I'm prepared for a rollercoaster ride while I get it "just right" ...
I've heard before people say that Humulin N is "absolutely awful" but never an elaboration on that.
So I'm a little nervous, still have some Lantus I'm using up now so I haven't started it YET, but I was unable to really get all my questions answered in the 10-15 minutes I'm "allowed" at the clinic.
(I hope I don't sound too stupid LOL. I'm still pretty new at insulin.)
((And I also value other people's opinions and input over the doctor too, really ... I mean - she doesn't use it))
