This has NOT worked for me but Doc keeps increasing dosage. I'm under a LOT of stress and think this is what is keeping me in this dilemna. She has me on 20 two times a day. I'm at 250 to 205 range.

I AM WORRIED BECAUSE,It says this humulin70/30 is a synthesized lab strain of (Escherichia Coli Bacteria) that is genetically altered to produce Human Insulin. I AM AFRAID OF THE COLI BACTERIA. is that why i am always nauseated?

Taking 20 units mornings and 10 units at night, I have low blood sugars every time I use it. I drop below 70 everytime. I cut dosage, but still drop below 70 everytime.

As others have reported. This is not the best drug but after seeing different doctors including Encronologists, we all get the same answer. Stay on it but as we know; the best numbers we can get is around 240. It appears to be a physician pay off to me.

I take 80 units 3 X per day and still wake up with blood sugars above 220. It is so hard to find a doctor that actually treats you for your concern instead preach about losing weight when the medicine they prescribe causes you to gain the weight in the first place.

Started taking Humuilin 70-30 about 7 days ago, the only thing I have noticed so far is a horrible taste in my mouth that gets intense about 15 minutes after taking the medicine and loose bowls. My blood sugars have come within an acceptable range, and I have had no lows! also the side effects seem to be improving at day 7
