I am not, but I have heard of people that do. It cuts down on the volume of the insulin while still delivering the same dose. That way you dont have to change your pump tubing everyday for people that are using large amounts of insulin

that makes sense as to why they would switch you to that insulin. Lower volume...same dose.

Iam loving this new insulin.The humulin U-500 is 5times more concentrated than the regular one.So instead of being on 6.5 basal iam on 1.3 and havent had any signifigant highs like i used to.
