Well my endo finally put me on u500 and I am running it through my pump. I am using 1.5 an hour. So far it is working pretty good. I might have to go up to 2 an hour but that is still pretty good. Does anyone have any experience with it?

Yes it is not ordinary by far. It is 5 times stronger than the normal kind. Be careful on and make sure you always have a sugar source on hand until you know you have it under control. I am on 2 units an hour now and I take glucovance 3 times a day also. Good luck and if you need anything let me know.

Well so far I am doing good with it. It is keeping my sugars to normal levels and I only use the normal amount I should use. Now I only change my cartridge every 3 days like I should.
