    What about the Novorapid and Levemir listed on your profile?

    They put me on humulin first but my Doctor said there is a peak with the humulin where you get the max amount of insulin. Where I take it at bedtime , he was afraid I would drop too low at night . The tried lantus..allergic to it.... Then levemir which is great it has no peaks and keeps things more level. By supper time I am starting to go up and need to address this but I feel better in general . Still feeling my way through this maze of testing eating right and injections. Hopefully will become second nature after awhile. Good luck hope you can get leveled out!!

    Cheers from Canada
