Insulin

I have noticed a pattern of high readings two hours after lunch. Could this be because the effect of the Ultratard has diminished? I have contemplated by changing to two injections of Ultratard per day. When is the best time to take Ultratard? What percentage should I take at each time?

My 6.5 year old takes 2 injections a day of Regular, Lente and Ultralente. The shots are given at 6:45 A.M. and 5:35 P.M. Her night time snack is at 8 P.M. At approximately 9 P.M., she sometimes feels low and is. Why would this be happening: there is no insulin peaking at that time?

I have read time and again about there being no adverse side effects of human Insulin, but my husband doeshave adverse reactions in the form of aggression, loss of memory, confusion, and a general personality change. I understand that this is rare, but I’m tired of it being denied by the medical profession.

I just read a comment about mixing Humalog and NPH. It said, “you probably can keep the Humalog and NPH together for about 1 hour”. Does the insulin not work the same if it’s mixed?

I recently got put on NPH and Regular twice a day, and have noticed that I get a severe headache about an hour after taking it. Can you become sick if you take more insulin if you are producing insulin on your own?

Two weeks ago, my two year old son was started on Ultralente, and about that time he started waking up between 1 and 2 am coughing. Is there something in the Ultralente that is not in the NPH that may be causing this reaction?
