hi I have been a diabetic for 33 years. I was on pork insulin up until 5 years ago ihad no problems on pork mixtard. then I could no longer get it on nhs they put me on nova mix then after a year being on it I started having loads of hypos.and started loosing lots of weight .it took some time for the doctor to change it . when a doctor finally changed it I was put on solar star and nova rapid .fine for about first year apart from it hurting when I was injecting . but last year ive started having hypos again and loosing loads of wheight. can you suggest a different type of inuslin.i was told by someone they read something in the paper about a new inuslin were those on more than 1 a day. it stopped hypos stoped liver problems and eye problems and you only needed 1 aday but they didn't know what it was called . my doctors don't seem to listen. if I new a name of insulin which would be better I could mention it to my gp thank you heather.
