    Hey everybody!
    I was using the omnipod until today, but because the next boxes are arriving in two weeks, and I have to use my Apidra Pen, and the Insuman Basal. But the thing is... I forgot how to calculate how much insuline do I need. Can someone help me out? How do I know how much should I inject with Insuman Basal in the morning and night. And how to calculate how much should I inject with the Apidra.
    Thank you very much!!

    Hi @pamelacretu , can you contact your diabetes nurse or your doctor about that? There is no way we can know how much insulin you need.
    Good luck!
