My name is Niki I was diagnosed type 1 diabetic about a year ago and started using humolog right away as a short acting insulin. I went through a honey moon phase where my body was still producing insulin so I used to experience crashes more often. Now that I'm officially a diabetic I use my humolog before every meal to cover my carbs but I'm not sure if this insulin is efficient. Sometimes it will cover the carbs and other times my blood sugar will be sky high. Also as far as the shots go I feel like I'm not a professional because I still bruise myself (not as much as I used to) and I haven't figured out the right spots to give myself the shot. Is humolog a reliable insulin? And why isn't it consistent when it comes to lowering my blood sugar?
