Basal impacts of insulin speed

I’ve written numerous times about modelling the activity profiles of various insulins. Telling my oref-based Automated Insulin Delivery (AID) system which insulin I’m using lets it model the current situation (and forecast the future) quite well. We usually think about this in terms of the simple concept of a single bolus: how quickly it starts …

Insulin timings (2022)

Different insulins have effect (and get used up) at different speeds, and modelling this is important for accurate calculation of subsequent insulin doses. Some automated insulin delivery (AID) systems try to determine this themselves (e.g. CamAPS has nowhere for us to tell it which insulin we’re using) and some (e.g. Medtronic and Control-IQ) seem to …

Mixing insulins – theory and practice

Faster insulins can be dramatically useful for AID (Automated Insulin Delivery) systems. Anything that reduces latency within the loop can improve our overall glycaemic control. A topic often discussed amongst people looking to get faster insulins is the possibility of mixing insulins in pumps. I do have to be clear and point out that this …

Lyumjev

Having sourced a bit of Lyumjev from overseas, I’ve been able to “give it a run”. In fact I’ve been using it for almost two months now. My conclusions? As expected, I’m really keen for it to officially arrive in Australia! I’ve been mentioning Lyumjev for many months, but to recap: it’s Lilly’s faster version …
