    Hi everyone,

    Any suggestions for using Apidra for the first time? I welcome any feedback or pointers.

    I picked up the prescription and will fill the pod tonight for the first time. Unless someone replies with a reason not to :)

    Thanks in advance,

    Emily

    I only can use a site for 2 and 1/2 days. Basal rates and adjustments are key. It is very short acting for many of us so a little bubble here, a bit of a clog in the site, a bit of degrading of the insulin, means a big impact. But you can correct quickly, you can cover a high carb meal without a huge tail, for me you can eat without waiting 20 minute post bolus. good luck. ali
