You know Glenna, I have been T1D for 35+ years, so I have used just about everything under the sun. lol I am currently using Novolog in my insulin pump. It is the brand my insurance pays for so not much choice in the matter. BUT I have found over the 10-15 years that I have been switched back and forth from Novolog to Humalog and back, quite often actually, Novolog NOW does a better job of helping my control. When i was in a much younger body, about 20 years ago, Humalog did a better job. I don't use any long acting insulin because my insulin pump is programmed to handle the needs long term.
I have used beef R and U, pork R and U, humulin (name used before humalog, same company), and I even agreed after 15 years to go back to multiple shots daily for 6 months to see if we could get me back in control. At that time I used Humalog for rapid response and she tried Lantus for long acting. Interestingly enough it turns out that I have alergic reactions on Lantur and it is no longer an option for treatment.
T1D symptoms, management, and treatments can and do change as you age. Your body changes as you age, so this makes perfect sense, right? I assumed for many, many years that once we found a good treatment we were set till the end. HA! Not even close to the truth! So if you test your bg and it is low but you didn't and even don't still feel shaky and sweaty, don't feel confused. It may be your body has a totally different signal to give you now. I very seldom get shaky and sweaty until I am below 40 anymore. I feel nauseated now. So my tummy feels sick, I do not assume it is related to my gastroparesis until AFTER checking my bg to make sure it is in a reasonable range.
