    This sounds really intriguing. I wonder if any folks with diabetes have started using this off label? If it really works that quickly, it would take some time to get used to. What might this speedup mean for basal rates ?

    I have an A1C of 5.8 for the last seven years and there are times that my blood sugars would go over 350. It can take as long as 3 to 5 hours to get it down, usually because of bad cannula sites or when I eat certain foods. I would sometimes use about a 1/3rd of the calculated insulin and inject it into an artery. My blood sugar would be at 100 within 25 to 30 minutes. One thing that I noticed was that it never goes below 90, almost as of my body starts to regulate my blood sugars and preventing it from going low automatically.

    Hyaluronidase (not recombinant) was being used more than 50 years ago to speed up absorption of fluids given subcutaneously (eg into thighs of children and debilitated elders) to treat dehydration. It surely is still available as a stand-alone drug. In the above, the first plan for use was with the separate injection of it with each set change.

    This actually looks promising…. and something easy and obvious that should have already been availaable. More people need to think outside the box.
