I am currently using HumulinR 500 three times daily (before each meal) and Lantus at night. My Endo prescribed 30u at breakfast and dinner and 13u at lunch. Does anyone else use HumulinR? If so, are you on a sliding scale or predetermined dose? Thank you in advance.

Thank you for your interest. I am looking for other persons experiences with HumulinR 500. And that is what I asked.

I was on that over 10 years ago, I was on a sliding scale, but I'm T1. Not quite sure the benefit of Humulin R as opposed to something like Hunalog.

Well, to start the discussion off, most people are on U100 insulin, and you are on U500, which is a more concentarted dose, so you need to be careful on advice that you are looking for on here.
So the question you should be asking is;
Does anyone else use U500 HumulinR ?
and then work form there.
