i just started U-500 insulin today. It's insulin that is 5xs the strength of regular insulin… I am heavily insulin resistant and was taking 200+ units of insulin a day through my pump. My sugar has been 260-375 over the last 5 hours. I haven't been eating more than usual. I am concerned if coming off a fast-acting insulin (Novolog/Humalog) to a Regular insulin though 5xs potent is creating these high readings because it's not working as fast as I'm used to. However the correction bolus doesn't seem to work either.. going from 265 to 261 in 2.5 hours doesn't seem to be working.
Any feedback on U-500 would be helpful.
