    Soo I've been diabetic for 14 years now and been given a new schedule regarding my insulin.

    I've just given a correction dose of 3 units of my novorapid but also its time to take my Tresiba insulin, I'm just checking if taking these two insulins so close together would be okay ?

    I'm 19 and still getting use to my new changes after being on the same rountine since I was 5. Thank you.

    I'm not a tresiba user (lantus and humalog) but I can't see why it wouldn't be OK. Just make sure you use different sites.

    They act differently in the body so you are ok to take them at the same time. Just different sites as @EllieM says and be careful not to mix up doses.
