Has Anybody Switched Insulin Lately?

Has Anybody Switched Insulin Lately?

I just switched from Levemir and Novorapid to Basalgar and Apidra. Much cheaper and seems to control my sugars more efficiently. Has anybody else switched insulins lately?

Getting diabetes under control, where u don’t need meds - is considered well controlled (as in controlled with diet and [[treatment:exercise):560c520a1fcaa3d2190005c2]]). In NO way is that reversed!!!! Simply well controlled.. I hate that word “reversed” is oh so deceptive and should not be applied to diabetes

My original question was if anybody switched insulin lately. I appreciate all the comments regarding keto diets and lifestyle changes but they do not apply to me. Donald you said type two diabetes isn't caused by a fly bite. Mine was caused by ingesting a parasite which attacked my organs. I have a very small portion of my pancreas left which really doesn't function at all. For me Insulin is not a choice which can be altered by diet or exercise. Diet is very important to me and exercise is a daily event. Unfortunately with my job there is a lot of irregularity especially during travel for days at a time. Exercise is not possible and diet is airport or plane food. Even if I eat a perfect diet I still need insulin.

I will be in a few weeks 😤 my insurance will no longer cover apidra, and it works for me. There’s a savings card out there, but only covers up to $100 a month - if I did the cash price on it, monthly it’d cost me over $400, can’t afford that!!!! So my dr will be changing me some weird named one, can’t rememmber name of it
