Faster Acting Insulin Could Be On The Horizion

When I first saw the article my first thought was faster lows…it kind of scared me. But after reading it, there seems to be some great promise in an insulin you can take before or even after you have eaten and it covers the meal quickly but also ends quicker, reducing the risk of a hypo event after taking it. Other countries have already approved it and it is looking like the concerns the FDA had are being addressed. Should be interesting to see. Here is the full article: Good morning. I am new here and looking for sound advice. My husband has type two diebetes and we can't seem to get his blood sugar down and we don't want more medication....We want to be medication free.

    I'm 27, 5'10", 180lbs male with type 1 for 14 years. I'm pretty darn good with my control. I've started using a CGM and noticed if I manage to get really high, it takes a really long time to bring my blood sugar back down. I have an aggressive ratio (1:9/unit/grams of carbs).
    If you use this insulin, how long does it take to change a high? I've also been getting crazy spikes after meals. I've been bolusing 20 minutes ahead of meals because of it. I don't know if this is normal or how I've always reacted. My A1cs are usually 6.2.

    Food and insulin for me both take about 15 minutes to start having an effect on my sugar levels. I too take Humalog.
    Weight may have something to do with it but I'm 5'5" and 230 and it's been about 15 minutes since I started with Humalog over 10 years ago.

    It's all relative for me. High as in 250? 15-20 min, it will be on it's way own. Something huge like 400? Maybe more like an hour.
