Default Novolog

Type 1 for 37 years. I was switched from a mix of Humulin R and Humulin N to NoVo and Lantus about 2 years ago during a period of control difficulty, much I believed was caused by severe stress. I was also on Lipitor. Within several months, my control worsened. After dinner and my NoVo injection, I would become ravinously hungry while still being full. I felt tired, had joint pain in the ankles, knees, fingers as well as tingling or numbness around my ankles. I thought some of this was age (I'm 43) and was under terriffic stress. I became sick more often and managed to gain 20 lbs. (just what I needed). It seemed sometimes the NoVo just didn't work or worked slow causing low BG reactions at odd times (like at dawn). I have since decreased my NoVo use returning to Humilin R using the Novo when BG is high or in small amounts after lunch or snacks. I am for now off the Lipitor but still have the joint pain and get tired and sick faster than usual. My severe stress issues have also been abated. Again I thought it was age until reading comments posted here. I'm done, back to Hum R for me! If the Doc don't like it I'll find one that does.
