If I have to mix both long lasting and short lasting together, can I use a pump or pen ?

This is a really good question to ask your physician and/or diabetes educator. Insulin pumps only use short-acting insulin, and insulin pens come pre-filled. It's not uncommon for people to need both types of insulin, and work with your doctor and diabetes educator to find the system that's right for you. ~Lynn @Glucerna

I'm on pens as well, you'd have to take 2 shots unless you use pre-mixed, which may not be an option depending on your needs and dosages
