Insulin treatment
I am diabetes since 32+ years. I was given insulin from March 2018 during By-pass surgery. Previously I was on Atrapit thrice and 10 units Basalog in night at 10 pm. Now I am taking 1w2 units in morning and 6 units in night of Human Mixtard plus w to 4 units of Atrapit in day time SOS. I am having 2 bottles of unused Basalog insulin. Can I take Basalog insulin in place of human Mixtard and if yes, what will be dose. My doses are 12-0-6 units of human Mixtard.

No. Both are different types of insulin with different effects. You must not interchange them.
