    Hey All,
    I normally use humulin r but all of a sudden they went up in price like 5x and are very scarce. which leads me to my question. Novolin R is very inexpensive and i can get almost 7 novo vs 1 humulin. This makes me wonder what the difference between the two if the price is so drastic? For those that have used both, do you feel a difference or is there an actual real noticeable difference between the two?? i appreciate your feedback..
