Do you know of anyone using a constant dose of both Regular and NPH insulin, while using Lente on a slide scale basis with the Regular insulin injections?
Although there are many ways to handle insulin, using both NPH and Lente in the same individual is like mixing butter and margarine on the same sandwich: they both do the same thing, although they're made of different stuff.
And there's no reason I can think of to use an intermediate-acting insulin as a variable-dosing insulin, whilst using a short-acting insulin as a non-varying dose!
There is more information about the types and duration of action of the different insulin products.
