    Hello all,

    I've been on Humalog 25 mix for about a month now.
    Still titrating to get the right dose (upping by 2 units every 3-5 days).

    Just wondering how many units the rest of you (Humalog or not) are currently injecting?

    It took approx 3 months until the correct dose was achieved. I am now on 50 units pre-breakfast and 22 units pre evening meal.
    On the whole levels are good but have some wild ups and downs. It's a good idea to record what you eat and when (time) you eat so that if you have a rogue result you can check back to see if your food intake has some effect.
