Question from Wellington, New Zealand:
Our son is type 1, age seven, normal weight, was diagnosed two years ago. He has good control (HBA 7.0). He only needs a total of ten Protaphane and two Actrapid each day. Why does he only need such a small dose of insulin to control his blood sugars?
I guess he’s still making some insulin himself. If he’s very active then this may help to explain his low insulin requirement.
