Yes yes yes ! I am hoping (praying ) that Rizodeg will be scriptable by monday – you heard me this coming monday!
The insulin we have been waiting for : no stacking (NO stacking) nil to no hypos, steady release, long half life, a short acting component for meals -breakfast and supper – you can either eat NO carbs for lunch or do an extra short acting dose.
Essentially a BD – twice daily dose with far far better CONTROL – i.e. staying in the happy zone of 5-9 constantly – what joy!!!!
WE have been waiting and waiting for a product like this and it is about to arrive and arise!
Diabetics on insulin up to now have swung from high to low and low to high and had very little control over this, so many factors and “not at all predicable” absorption.
This new insulin solves many of our issues and we can not wait!!
Sadly probably not re-imbursed by med aids – but which diabetic would not gladly rather have quality of life?
Rather save on some other things and make sure the diabetic in your life has quality and quantity of life 🙂
