The documentation exists but . . . It is in the hands of the drug reps and pharmarcists [ a good pharmacist is easier to find than a good doctor] . Pharmarcists track and store scripts that interact and they are the ones that see the returns too. One Endo stated that less than 2% of all diabete have any problems with insulin and I asked . . . what about allergic reactions to the preservatives? The Endo’s face went Blank! (DING) “we never thought of that they said”
Here are the clues to insulin preservative reaction:
Severe - No kidding Edema [ REQUIRES LASIX ]
Hunger - That hits as soon as you adjust or dose?
Insulin - Usual Dose continue to increase?
Pain - Muscles and Joints . . . Cramps too.
Sweating after dose and BG is not high or low?
Steriods - Make it feel Better?
There are many of us with systoms just like the above that suffer until a doctor can or will prescribe new meds. And when they do actually make the change for you that are doubtful that it will do any good. However, if you find an Endo that kids have diabetes then you might have one that really cares about their clients.
I have kept records too and I share them will doctors that care.
My A1C has improved by 30%

My Energy 300% Improved
My Muscle Mass is Back !
I am still down the 35 lbs but I am 275 lbs and can lift 300 lbs. Losing my belly and love handles too.
As I said once before; Diabetes is a very peronsal disease and not everything works all the time for everyone. You gotta dig in and when you see changes note it. And not just good changes either . . . I had an issue where my BG was climbing all the time to 269 for seeming no reason. I went to a GP who said that everything was ok. So I next went to see a trusted pulmonary doctor that I had seen for many years but worked 60 miles away. They checked me out and I had the beginning of Pneumonia after to runs of Avelox I am back to running between 108 - 160 which is great for me.
