My 80 year old mother has been on insulin injections for her diabetes for just a couple of months, and since she started on insulin, they’ve changed it a handful of times, because of allergic reactions (swelling, rashes, itching). Her dermatologist and allergy specialists say they’re not familiar with these kinds of reactions to insulin. Is there any information on this?

My eight year old son has had a lot of highs and lows, and, in fact, he is rarely in his goal range. Yesterday, we saw a new pediatric endocrinologist who suggested that we change to Ultralente at breakfast and supper with Humalog at breakfast, lunch, and supper. How do these treatments differ? What changes can we expect to see?
