We will be switching from Humalog to Apidra (do you pronounce it "A-pid-dra" or "A-pee-dra", just wondering?) in about two weeks or so. We already have a brand-new vial of Apidra in the fridge, but I'm a cheap-assed penny pincher and want to use up our small remaining Humalog supply before it ages out, hence the 2-week-ish delay. I decided to give Apidra a try because my daughter's post-prandial BG spikes soar into the mid-200s to low 300s a great deal of the time despite: 1) pre-bolusing (anywhere from 15 minutes to up to 1.75 hours before eating), 2) utilizing varying extended boluses, 3) avoiding pizza and other "non-D-friendly" foods, and 4) innumerable adjustments/combinations of adjustments made to her basal rates, DIA, ISF, I:Cs, targets/ranges. I have seen no pattern or temporal relationship between these sticky spikes (which are often resistant to even the angriest of repeated rage-boluses) and particular foods/ingredients, time of day, day of the week, amount of exercise, stress, weather, season, moon phase, fashion choice, etc. I'd be grateful for any advice/helpful hints from parents who have switched from Humalog (or any other fast-acting insulins) to Apidra. I know that Apidra and t:slim pumps do not play well together, but my daughter is a very happy OmniPod user so I've been able to cross this particular factor off the list. I'm pretty sure that I'll need to adjust the DIA on my daughter's pump for starters. What other (if any) pump settings did you end up needing to adjust after switching to Apidra, and in which direction? Do you prefer Apidra to the other fast-acting insulin(s) you had used previously? Why or why not? Did Apidra not work as well for your child, leading you to switch back to your "old" insulin or to try yet another fast-acting insulin? If so, why (and what did you try next)? I will go ahead and re-read old threads/posts on Apidra, but I'd still like to hear about more recent experiences and from those of you who may not have already posted about Apidra. I realize that YDMV and all, and what worked or did not work for you may not end up being what will work for us, but any information from parents who have traveled this road will be greatly appreciated.
