Insulin Analogs

I wsa diagnosed with type 2 diabetes 2 1/2 years ago. Now, because I am a type 2 diabetic and must use 35 to 40 units of Humalog to eat, is there any information on what these large doses of insulin could do to me?

I’ve been taking 75/25 mixed insulin along with Glucophage and Actos. I would like to get pregnant again soon, so I went to my endocrinologist who took me off the pills and replaced them with Lantus in addition to the mixed insulin. My concern is the effects of the Lantus on the fetus. Should I be concerned?

I was diagnosed with diabetes last week, and I am taking a fast acting insulin before meals according to my readings and I’m taking 10 units of Lantus at bedtime.

Since my son started taking Strattera or his ADHD, his nighttime blood sugars are running low, and he seems to be running high during the day. We have ave lowered his Lantus and increased his Humalog slightly. Could the Strattera be causing my son to run high during the day and low at night?

My 13 year old son has been on the same dosage of Lantus for six weeks with very regular numbers, but recently he had an unexplained episode of prolonged hypoglycemia. Is there any evidence of problems occurring with Lantus so that it becomes concentrated? Do you have any other explanations for this terrifying night?

I was reading an article on this website when I came across a sentence which said that Humalog is approved by the FDA for use in children over age 12 and studies are ongoing to obtain approval in younger children. This was very disturbing to me since my four year old daughter takes Humalog before some of her meals. Is Humalog is safe for her?

We are currently switching from NPH to Lantus. Since Lantus is clear, is there a reason we couldn’t use a squirt of food color to inject into the Lantus so that it stands apart from his Humalog?
