    I am on a regime of Novorapid/Lantus insulin injections. I have previously read on this forum that injecting these two insulins within a short time of each other is not recommended. What about injecting a small corrective dose of Novorapid shortly after taking my daily Lantus? Any information please?

    I've never heard that. I usually take my lantus at 10pm when I go to bed if my bs is high then I'll do a correction does its never affected me in adverse way. It's not to say im right,, I'm sure someone with better knowledge than me will come along and answer your query!

    Not read that on the forum before, providing you inject the lantus and Novorapid in different sites there shouldn't be a problem, I inject my lantus early evening around the same time as I have my Novorapid with my food, if unsure ask your DSN.

    On Levemir/Novorapid, I've taken them both one after the other, in different sites. No issues what so ever.
