    Although I had a period of adjustment during the first 3 weeks of using Apidra, I love it. I am on less insulin than previously. My duration of action is 3 hours and it was 4 hours BUT the uptake of insulin is greater in the first hour when you need it for rice and odd things like that. I love it. Thanks

    I am a type 2 diabetic "pumper" and am insulin resistant. I have been on a pump for five years and thought all my troubles controlling my diabetes where in the past. But I became very resistant to the Novolog insulin I was using. My endocronologist tried me on this insulin - I had never heard of it. Within one week I was seeing a big difference in my BG numbers without changing the amount of insulin my pump was programed for and am actually seeing some low BG numbers. I had given up thinking I was doing something wrong with my control, but it wasn't me! What a boost for my self esteem! Thank you Apidra!

    I have also recently switched to Apidra (6 weeks) and the results have been amazing. This insulin is great. It seems to be more effective and I am using it permanently now.

    takes at least 30 minutes to 60 minutes to act. Don't know if I will stay on it after my next Dr. visit and HGA1C results.

    I wish there was and easier way to use this insulin other than injection but otherwise it has minimal side effects.
