where people touched by diabetes help each other.

Humalog question. I take humalog three times a day. What would be considered a high dosage per injection and total daily? 20 x 3? 40 x 3?

if you are on a pump you usually intake less per day with injections...

but Lantus will cover you for 24-hrs... you probably eat a lot of carbs to need to take that much insulin per day. and mind you the more you inject the hungrier you will be its a vicious circle
