The aim of this experiment is to test the pharmacodynamics and pharmacokinetics of insulin analogs and their dependence on external and physiological alterations. The investigators plan compare the pharmacodynamics of insulin analog delivery in regular conditions and in the presence of increased perfusion of the delivery site, achieved by way of local warming, movement and topical application of Capsaicin cream. The investigators will also test the effect of local heating and topical application of Capsaicin cream on the post prandial glucose levels following a bolus.
