Re: scared please read
Novolin is a brand name and if it is cloudy, it sounds like nph. This is a very old fashioned insulin. If you want better control you should switch to a basal/bolus regime. This means taking a long acting (without peak like the nph) insulin that will cover your basal requirements. This is the insulin that is needed for your body to function. You will then count the carbs in the foods you eat and take the humalog based on what you are eating, every time you eat. You will also have to work out an ISF (insulin sensitivity factor). This is figuring out how many points one unit of the humalog will bring you down. So then you will know how much to take. It's a lot of work, but you can get excellent control doing this. It is the modern way although a fair number of docs still do what you are doing.
If you want to learn about this I would invest in getting the books "Think like a pancreas" and "Using Insulin". They will help you a lot get good control.
