  • I have been suffering with nausea, vomiting, pain throughout my colon, and constipation for about two months. This has been totally debilitating and I can't seem to get over it. There is no illness or other medical reason for this. I use both Humalog and Lantus daily. I have diabetes II, Hypertension, osteoarthritis, stomach ulcers, and degenerative disk disease. This constipation and nausea is ruining my life. I have been on Humalog and Lantus for over 4 years.
