    Just got very first home test done. Not familiar with this insulin but I think she should not shoot a 78.

    Novolin is an itermediate-acting insulin, like Humulin. I don't know any of the specifics of her situation, obviously, but I would NOT recommend shooting if her cat is at 78.

    I think this is the same person I just advised on the FB page NOT to shoot since she is just starting and has no data

    Posted this reply on the other thread

    Thanks Lucy, the active thread is the link above

    I think I got the posts messed up. Trying to get eyes on her as no one responded to her all day.

    That's a shame! I'm sorry, I didn't see it earlier. Looks like she's getting the help she needs, now, though! :)

    Sorry, I just now got this tag. I agree DO NOT shoot a 78. Novolin R is a harsh fast acting insulin and that is way too low of a pre shot number. I only used Novolin R in adjunct to Lantus to help with Ketones.

    Where did you get that R insulin was being used?
    In the topic referenced in the first post in this topic, the original posted said the are using "It's N NPH ".

    Novolin is Novo Nordisk's trade name for a family of Recombinant DNA origin insulins. They include N (sometimes called NPH), and R (very fast actions) and mixture of the two. Only N/NPH is OK, but not that good, for cats.
    In the other topic I asked which Novolin and she replied "It's N NPH ".

    I admit, I did not read the whole post, only from the tag to me on this page. I assumed when I was tagged it was for Novolin R.

    ETA : You know what they say happens when you assume. ;)
