on a recent visit to my endocronologist, he mentioned (in passing!) that diabetics should not inject insulin more often than once every four hours. i am type 1, take Lantus every 12 hours and inject Humalog every time before i eat.
i used to wear a pump which provided a steady drip of Humalog…not just once every 4 hours. and i often take bolus injections to correct high BGs.
anyone heard of this 4 hour limitation before? know the logic or science behind it? i've been diabetic for 15 years and with this same doctor for 12 of them. i see nutritionists every few years, read everything i can get my hands on, belong to online groups like this one…still, i've never heard of this before!
