Hello Fellow Type 1/LADA Diabetics.
I am hoping for some beyond what I have read on the various discussion threads.
I am on the Tandem Tslim since Aug. 1st (formerly Animas). I am experiencing difficulty with Novolog in that it seems to have a very slow response time (same with Humolog). Because I was experiencing this slow response time even before my pump switch, I went on Fiasp for over a year. It was fantastic while it worked but like many of you, I started experiencing problems (extreme bruising, unexpected highs, needing to change my insets frequently). I use steel insets (contact detach). So now I am back on Novolog. While my endo has advised patients in the past about how to mix insulins to get best results, he is no longer doing so because of the new program being launched by Tandem whose algorithms are designed for humolog and novolog only. I have not yet upgraded to this new system and am slightly skeptical given how slow my body responds to novolog and humolog.
I still have three full vials of unused Fiasp and am considering mixing it with my novolog (30%-70%). I have read a few articles but many of the users were mixing it with other types of insulin and also with varied amounts. I am also wondering about the logistics of mixing it in a syringe (how to mix it after drawing from two different bottles). I would appreciate hearing from people’s experiences as I am at wit’s end --exhausted from the swings of highs and lows.
