I am a type 1 diabetic on a low carb diet. I currently am using FIASP as my bolus insulin but am finding that it takes my blood sugar down too quickly causing me to have to correct by eating carbs and then causing my blood sugar to rise too high before I have my next main meal. I notice that Dr Richard Bernstein recommends that people on a low carb diet should be taking a slower acting regular insulin like humulin-R. However I have asked my diabetic nurse advisor about this and she tells me that this type of insulin isn’t available in the UK and she can’t think of a substitute which would act the same way. Can someone in the low carb community give me some advice on what insulin’s you use as I find it hard to believe that in the Uk there aren’t any slower acting short acting insulin’s than FIASP or Novo Rapid.
