I use Nov N and Nov R what would the conversion be if I switched to 70/30?

I use Nov N and Nov R what would the conversion be if I switched to 70/30?

Are you type 2?: Hi. In general I never prescribe N and R; we have insulins now with better profiles that can make insulin action more predictable and hypoglycemia after a dose less likely. I may still use N and R in a type 2 based on cost issues, but never in a type 1. 70/30 is 70% N and 30% R; e.g., a 10 unit dose is 7 units of N and 3 units of R. Multiply the units of 70/30 by 0.7 - that's the N; remainder is R ...Read more

When should I switch my child to a toddler bed?

When should I switch my child to a toddler bed?

I always say the longer in the crib, the longer you sleep! ...Read more

Since the left handedness arises from one's neurologic makeup, it will always be dominant, but one can learn right handed uses through persistence and exercise. To my knowledge, one is not really converted to the right handed nature. ...Read more
