    Good morning all, I hope you are all well.

    Anyone following dr Bernstein’s low carb approach and using actrapid or humulin s to cover meals?

    I’ve just been given the green light to try actrapid as I’m finding it hard to get good results using my novorapid with dr Bernstein’s low carb approach without splitting doses. when having the occasional treat of pizza or a sneaky takeout it’s a good solution but I’ve found for every meal to cover the fat and protein digestion a bit of a chore and miss time one shot and your shooting higher than you should be a pain in the behind. Also the extra jabs are making me a little sore as there isn’t a lot of meat on me either.

    Any insight or advice would be very welcomed.

    Thanks in advance ;)
