I think that is almost taking the same type of insulin twice. They both serve the same purpose but Humalog works faster than humulin R. Have you tried talking to your doctor about Lantus? Or even an insulin pump?

I am definitely a fan of Lantus here. It helps with overall control and limits night time hypos. I am on humolog during the day have been since diagnoses 17 years ago and still going great guns with it. Are you able to book in to see an educator or nutritionist? They can help you identify low GI foods that will help keep you stable and also teach you about carb counting, so you can adjust your doses based on the carbs you eat.

I used to be on protophane twice a day but was switched over to Lantus a few years ago and love it

I had the Lantus..and it did not do well. I am reaching out to a dietitian and health coach.

That's great you are reaching out to a dietician and health coach. It's amazing what you can learn. I have been a diabetic for 17 years and have a sister who's been a diabetic for 34 years and it's amazing how the treatment and understanding of the disease has changed over that time. There is so much to learn understand. Don't hesitate to ask specific questions you don't understand in the mean time and we will do our best to help and support you :)

I would encourage your doc to switch u from humilin to longer acting basal such as levemir or lantus as these have better efficacy
