From Point Reyes, California, USA:

My 12 year old daughter has type 2 diabetes. For the past month and a half, she has been having low blood sugars, down to the 40s mg/dl [2.2 to 2.7 mmol/L] and 50s mg/dl [2.8 to 3.2 mmol/L]. We took her in to the Emergency Room at on point when she was vomiting and very tired. Now, she is on Lantus and Humalog, but still her blood sugar remains less than 100 mg/dl [5.6 mmol/L]. Why is this?


Your questions would be best answered by your diabetes physician who can make adjustments to her insulin dosing. Please contact them for assistance with preventing low blood sugars; her insulin dosing may be too high.
