I just finished up a two day trial of apidra - boy did I try. I tried with my heart and soul. I just had too much trouble. First the good - its dependable. It clears in 3:15 on the nose. This means wherever my DS landed, then I could correct and be done. Now the bad...for some reason it took awhile to really kick in. And thats sort of ok...we tested blood sugar every ten minutes after bolusing and still no movement after 30 minutes...we would eat at that point. Blood sugar would then go up pretty fast after eating and hang until about 2 hour mark...we were low carbing to really try to learn and be careful. At a spike of about 200, suddenly there is a whoosh in hour three. The drop made my son feel low. As someone who stacks boluses (1 unit every hour and feed twelve carbs every hour in a workable attempt to keep postprandials about 140), I couldnt use that trick with apidra - it was too difficult to time the comedown...you could get in a situation where you are dropping 200 points in an hour if you screw up or get hung in the 300's. Our A1C is 5.9, so Im back to the humalog since we are having success with that. Really wanted the apidra to work though. So when you look ahead to inhalable insulin as a 'fast acting' insulin...it makes me wonder if fast acting is such a good thing. Really what we need is instantaneous insulin, but also tiny amounts of glucagon to control.
