I’m currently using Humalog in the pump and planning a pregnancy. The doctor hasn’t said anything about switching insulins. If your blood sugar has to be 105 before meals and no higher then 120 one hour after, how would you adjust if the Humalog peaks after 2 hours?

I have a client using Humalog in her pump. Several months after pump initiation, she and her provider noted pitting atrophy at her infusion sites. They switched back to buffered Regular and noted some improvement. Has the Humalog been noted to cause this reaction in other “pumpers”?

My daughter is 9 years old and diagnosed 9 months old. Her endocrinologist said we needed to give her 2 units of Humalog if her sugar was over 150 before meals. We are not sure how much Humalog to give her if her sugar is over 200 after meals.

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 interested in the use of insulin — specifically Humalog in children with diabetes. Can you point me to any professional web sites (hospital or physician) where there is information on guidelines for insulin initiation?

I am a 29 year old with type 1 diabetes for 17 years. My question is regarding Humalog and pregnancy. Although not yet approved by the FDA, I have heard of women using it while pregnant. Different doctors have given me different answers, so now I am really confused!

I am a nurse and am dealing with two 5�year old diabetics. I have doctor’s orders to give insulin after lunch with one of these children. The type of insulin used is Humalog. I am familiar with many aspects of diabetes, but not with the practice of giving insulin after a meal.

While I read a great deal about Humalog being able to maintain its efficacy for up to 28 days without refrigeration, we have had at least 6 instances of Humalog “going bad” on us. The bottles usually have been open a couple of weeks, so they are not close to expiration. Is there something we are missing?

My son’s endocrinologist is suggesting we switch to Humalog instead of R (at least at bedtime), as this would leave his system quicker and reduce the risk of hypoglycemia during the night. I noticed, however, that Humalog is not recommended by the FDA for children under 12.
