Back to Using Novolog

Well last night was not good I had two bad infusion sets and they were extremely bloody. I can tell the Humalog was not doing well. I also had another occlusion as well. So overall very little sleep because of these issues. Luckily I have switched over to my Novolog and I have letter in hand from my insurance stating for the next year they will allow me to use Novolog due to my pump site issues I am currently experiencing. I did notice this morning when I woke up that my chest had a rash which is strange. I know things have been incredibly off since starting back on Humalog. I know things would have spiraled further out of control had I waited longer to contact my Endocrinologist office.

I just can't say enough about my Endocrinologist office they had this take care of so quickly and made sure I was safe and that I had what I needed to keep on going. They gave me extra bottles above what they were originally going to give me because I had mentioned I would be traveling next week and they wanted me to have several bottle on hand for emergency. They went above and beyond in my mind. This office has helped me solve difficult issues and helped keep me on track. I am thankful because they have squeezed me in during bad times where i needed help right away. I know I feel fortunate to be a patient where they work so hard to take care of the patients.

I have doing so great once I was back to using Novolog. I feel better and and my pump is not going crazy because bad sites and occlusions. I know I am hoping to avoid the bleeding from changing of pump sites which is very rare for me except for when I am on Humalog. I am so glad I won't have to deal with this for at least another year.


  1. I'm so glad that you were able to get this resolved without too big of a headache and glad that your endo's office was so helpful. I am one of the lucky ones who can do relatively fine on any type of insulin. You, Tarra, never seem to do anything the easy way....

    2. Laddie I know my body does not like insulin, pump sites, CGM sites or much of anything these days. I know I never had insulin issues until about a year ago when I pulled off of Humalog. So I guess I need to stay clear of that one for a while. My Diabetes has always been crazy but it seems to get more crazy the longer I have Diabetes.
