My nine year old daughter was diagnosed with type 1 diabetes a year ago, and we have been working toward putting her on the pump (we even switched doctors to do this). Her new doctor says she would do better on Lantus and Humalog because she is athletic. What are your thoughts on this?

My daughter has been on Lantus for eight weeks, and I’m finding she’s peaking too much between 4-7 am. We have lowered her dose quite a bit, but then had to raise her Humalog dose to compensate for the high sugars. I really want this to work, but the severe lows in the early morning are frustrating. Any suggestions?

I’m a 17 year old male and I have diabetes and I am wondering if Humalog has to be taken with food. My nurse at school thinks it does, so after lunch when I’m high she says unless I eat something then I can’t take any Humalog and I would really like to set her straight!

I am 32 years old, I have had type 1 diabetes for 14 years, and a few days ago my physician advised that the FDA had approved the use of Humalog during pregnancy about six months ago. I just want to double check with you if this information is indeed accurate.

My 26 month son has had type 1 diabetes for over a year, and I definitely want to try the Lantus. However, I thought Lantus wasn’t recommended for children yet.

My almost 13 month old.daughter is now on Regular and/or NovoLog before meals with NPH at bedtimes, and she is having a problem off and on, with the NPH peaking in the middle of the night. Can we try Lantus once her blood sugars have stabilized or is she too young?
