I am on Humalog 25 Mix and reading that it may cause heart failure ? Is this true ? What are the symptoms to look for ? Cause whenever an ECG is done so far I've been told it is 'clear'.

Can anyone suggest how i could help avoid lows in the morning i have not been on insulin but a little over a week since hospital stay and I'm taking strong steroids and have to adjust my medication to my numbers which is very confusing since i have never been on insulin before.
