Comment from: Mickey, 35-44 Female on Treatment for 2-5 years (Patient) Published: January 02

I have had diabetes for two years now, after spending a week in the ICU, $70,000 bill. Using this medication alone is not enough for me, blood sugar levels swing high to low. I was taking between 5-10 units 4-5 times a day when I took this medicine by its-self. Taken with long lasting Lantus, 40 units per night, I have been able to maintain my sugar levels very well, and while staying on a very strict diet, I have recently, on occasion, not needed to use the Aspart (Novolog)for a day or two. Which I enjoy not having to get poked with the needle so much.

I have been on Novo for almost three weeks now. I am getting very good results. I had an A1C of 12.0 last MD appt. but the therapy is working well for me. It should be noted that you have to balance diet and exercise with this medication in order to get the best benefit from it. No longer can I eat just ANYTHING I wanted to. I must adhere to a lifestyle change. We can feel better if we take care of ourselves.

recently diagnosed. It works very fast for me. I'm supposed to take it before EACH meal. I noticed my numbers drop rapidly after taking it. Once I went from 167(before breakfast) to 66 in 2 hrs and yes, I had a healthy breakfast.
