So yesterday I finally made the switch from Humalog to Novolog. I milked every last drop out of that Humalog vial. And it was a bittersweet site change. If you’ve kept up with my blog, you know that the reason I switched was because my insurance is no longer covering Humalog, and now only covers Novolog and Apidra. Apidra is still relatively new, so we went with Novolog. I’d been on Humalog for as long as I can remember.. back in the early days, I took Regular, but that’s the only other fast acting insulin I’ve ever taken (in 20 yrs).
The frustrating thing is that ever since the switch … I have been running high. My lowest BG in the last 20 hours since switching has been 140. I am hovering around 175-220. New site, new insulin… urgh. I am pregnant with twins, so I know that hormones and the babies can be factoring into that ..but my numbers were great the last few days … so I can’t help but wonder if I’m just now responding as well to Novolog? Which if that’s the case… it’s really going to stink.
I’m going to give it a couple of days and log like crazy. I’ve been counting every single carb, and not SWAG’ing it, just so I can get a true account of my numbers…. so fingers are crossed that we can turn this around SOON. Hopefully it just needs some time to adjust.
