    Well...it’s been a long time since I popped in here I started on a pump about 7 weeks ago and at the same time my dsn switched me to fiasp from novorapid. After about a month I developed the dreaded old dry mouth that I experienced before diagnosis and it’s driving me batty GP did bloods that were fine, my bs was awful for the first 5 weeks on the pump but have been loads better after we made adjustments. I’m using sprays, gels etc but getting nowhere has the Fiasp caused this? Has anyone else had this?

    Hello, yes I have a dry mouth with FIASP too, and also a loss of hypo awareness along with a massive drop in blood sugar levels so bad that when I go for a 1/2hr walk it drops 6-7mmols, it is now driving me mad I'm almost at the point of going back on Novorapid, how do you control your bms
