I was recently given a trial of Fiasp to use. I know it’s not supported to work on the tslim so I’ve just been injecting it manually when there is a high I need to correct and find that it’s much more effective correcting a high than novolog is. Because by the time novolog kicks in, the BG would have gone even higher and I find myself continuously trying to bolus more and more. But with Fiasp, it turns it around quickly.
I would love to use it in the pump but occlusions are a problem. I also heard that for some people, Fiasp 's effectiveness wears off after a while. But some people have reported mixing Fiasp with Novolog makes the occlusions go away. I’m wondering how many people here do this and whether it’s been effective for you?
I’m interested in particular:
When you mix it, what ratio do you mix it?
What is the pre bolus time after mixing?
Do you tell your doctor you are doing this and what do they say? My doctor doesn’t keep up with diabetes approaches and I’m pretty sure he won’t support mixing insulin. I don’t even think my endo would approve of it because it is not “by the books”.
