Insulin

Question from Plymouth, Michigan, USA:

My 13 year old son still takes Regular insulin at dinner. We have tried to switch to Humalog (mixed with NPH) for the dinner shot, but could not get a good morning number. We have switched back to Regular (he has a good reading for snack) and are getting good morning readings again. Are we doing the wrong thing?

Answer:

You should avoid being driven by what the books say your son should need but rather, concentrate upon what his results tell you. If it’s not broken, don’t fix it.
