From North Carolina, USA:

My 8 year old daughter, who has been diabetic since age 5, was placed on Lispro insulin 4 months ago to treat her up and down blood sugars. We liked the fast acting insulin since we couldn't always predict how much she would eat. In the past two weeks she has developed severe constipation. An X-ray today showed her colon full of fecal material. She has not had this condition before. Could the Lispro have played a hand in this?


I doubt there is any relationship.
