Novolin R and Pumps


Is anyone using novolin R with an insulin pump?


I currently use Novolog, but when I first started pumping in 1996, started with REG.

It works, but have to consider longer time it takes to be active. So if require higher basal at 6am, have to start increase maybe at 4am. Pre bolus for meals will be longer times.

I did not have CGMS at that time. If you do, then it will be easier to get settings right. It is certainly doable.


I just switched to Fiasp 10 days ago and so far it has kept me under better control than Novalog.
