    Taking 2009 mg Metformin. My blood sugars were all over the place, usually over 190. Was in hospital after surgery and Dr. put me on Humalog. Right now my BS is only 105. It has totally changed my life. Have not gained any weight as I walk it off. Have only had 2 spikes when I had to use more than 2 units. I am really happy with it.

    I have been taking this medication for quite some time now. My sugars had been regularly over 300, but are now 100-130 in the AM, and sometimes in the 90s. I see a light rise in my sugars during the day, but only about +20-30 (which is normal). The only hard part was getting used to injections, but since they are now a normal part of my day, it's really not a big deal.
