From Ontario, Canada

For children with Type 1 DM, do you think adequate blood glucose control can be achieved with NPH and Humalog at breakfast, Humalog at dinner and NPH at bedtime or should Humalog be used only for more intensive regimes, i.e., Humalog at meals and basal insulin of either NPH or UL?

My concern is will the lunch blood glucose be controlled without an injection of Humalog?


Bluntly, if it works don't fix it!

The practical day to day management of diabetes is more alchemy than science and every individual is different so almost any regimen may be tried. It's what does the job for you that matter
