I know that when I went onto human insulin, I got much better control. (In this test study of 1, it was 100% success
I also know that I always had my insulin sites checked by a nurse at my clinic appointments – what they were checking for I suspect was hyperlipertrophy, but perhaps you shouldn’t second guess things.
And I wouldn’t want to go back to the older human insulins, at definitely not the porcine/bovine insulins. But in the same way, I wouldn’t want anyone to feel they were being forced onto an insulin that didnt suit them (or their beliefs).
Choice is key. And that is important – some (maybe alot of) doctors dont provide the information to allow those who want it to make their own informed choice or the possibility of choice itself.
