I am switching to U200 soon, i want to know how people feel about it for whom have used it.
@EvieFire it is the exact same insulin it is just twice the concentration.
If you needed 10 units of U-100 insulin for a sandwich, you need 5 units of U-200. everything else about it is the exact same. cheers good luck
Hi @EvieFire . I don’t use U200 but came up when insulin strengths increased from U40 to U80 (and eventually U100). The only difference was adjusting to half the dosage for those who take more.
My son has been using it for 2 years. We use Omnipod, so the only issue is that U200 is only sold in Humalog pre-filled pens, so we have extract the insulin from the pens to fill the pods, but it’s not a big deal.
I use Omnipod also. Thank you for responding was needed. Im 14 and always cautious on new things i’m trying.
Being cautious is wise - be sure you investigating and learning what you can will serve you well. Why are you changing? I’m just curious.
Im changing so i can use less amount of insulin throughout my day and not give me complications during school.
