A press release from Insulet this (2019) October states that the FDA has approved the use of Fiasp in Omnipod Dash:
Insulet states that this is the first FDA approval for Fiasp use with a pump although based on other posts here it has been used in pumps outside the US (or without FDA approval) for some years now.
This is particularly relevant to me because my healthcare insurer just informed me that they will no longer cover Humalog and the only fast acting insulin on the list they provided is Fiasp!
Anyway, seems like a good time to change; I don’t like and rarely achieve the post-bolus-pre-meal delay so invariably go high (temporarily) after eating.
Nevertheless I have one question. I use the Humalog Kwikpen to avoid having to have both a vial and a box of unused Kwikpens (for backup in case of Omnipod system failure). The newer Insulet needles barely penetrate the Kwikpen seal; I push the needle in then dial 150IU out of the pen, if I don’t push hard on the syringe while doing this I can’t force insulin into it. Has anyone out there done this with the Sanofi Flextouch pen? Either for Fiasp or Novolog or, indeed, anything else because I guess they use the same pen. I don’t want to end up with a pen I can’t use.
