From Brandon, Mississippi, USA:
I have been told that only Velosulin and NovoLog have been approved by the FDA for use in pumps. Is this true? If so, are there mitigating reasons why only these two insulins have been approved?
Almost all diabetologists around the world use Humalog and NovoLog in insulin pumps without problems. Other insulins have not been approved for this purpose mostly due to the cost of applying to FDA for changes in authorization and inertia.
