[p]I started on insulin January of 2008; still new to it. Wes (NP-endo office) started me out on humalog. He mentioned Apidra but we didn't go that route. I went to have my 3 month check up, received my A1C reading...My A1C went up from 6.2 to 6.6. I was a little upset because I was getting closer to 6. Wes decided to download my PDM readings. We looked at the graphs, figured out I had issues with my post dinner meals and he thought Apidra would work for me. I thought about it. I decided to try Apidra out. I am glad I did because I have seen a change in my post meal numbers already. Apidra is FAST. I actually think I will have Wes write me a new prescription for the Apidra instead of the humalog. I know have have a lot of adjusting to do but I am excited to see what my A1C will be 3 months from now. [/p][p]Do You or have you used Apidra? If so, your thoughts?[/p]
