Insulin Analogs

  1. Just diagnosed, my son takes insulin for breakfast, lunch, and dinner, but what should he do for dinner insulin if he has a late breakfast and lunch, skips dinner? (21 Sep 2016)
  2. If a Lantus injection were injected directly into a vein, could the Lantus start working immediately and cause a person to go low? (1 Sep 2016)
  3. For the past few years, my son has had extreme muscle pain and tightness the day after exercise. Is this a side effect of Lantus? What do you recommend? (23 Jul 2015)
  4. After my insurance changed me from Apidra to Humalog, I began experiencing nighttime seizures. Have you heard of others who are extra sensitive to Humalog? (30 Jul 2013)
  5. I have had lipohypertrophy that slowly disappeared, but I now have crater-like pits on both my abdomen and legs, where I inject insulin. How can I prevent more of these from appearing? (3 Apr 2012)
  6. My teen daughter has been pumping Humalog for five years. She has developed lipoatrophy at injection sites in several areas. She does rotate sites. What do you advise? (3 Oct 2011)
  7. My daughter has developed lipoatrophy on her upper right leg. What can we do to get rid of the depression? Would a longer pen needle help? (27 Sep 2011)
  8. My son was put on Humulin 70/30. Can he take Lantus and short acting insulin? (31 Jul 2011)
  9. We've gotten conflicting information about the duration of Humalog. One doctor said two hours; another said four. So, is a two hour post meal test really accurate? (1 Feb 2011)
  10. Even though I keep increasing his Levemir dose, my son is still having high blood sugars around dinnertime. I don't think he is rebounding. What do you recommend? (19 Jan 2011)
  11. My daughter's new doctor wants her to switch from Lantus to Levemir, but I thought these were the same insulin. Why would the doctor suggest this? (7 Jan 2011)
  12. Recently, the NovoLog corrections I've given my son during the night have not lowered his blood sugar very much. Why is this happening? (1 Mar 2010)
  13. Is my daughter's insulin regimen a cause for concern? Her breakfast ratio 1:1.6; lunch 1:2.3; and dinner 1:1.6. She takes 10 units of Lantus before dinner. (1 Mar 2010)
  14. Despite a recent increase in her evening Levemir, my daughter is still waking up over 200 mg/dl [11.1 mmol/L]. How can we ensure she is closer to 100 mg/dl [5.6 mmol/L]? (19 Dec 2009)
  15. After 10 years of a certain correction factor, I am now experiencing lows when I correct with lispro. Does this mean I have an issue with insulin acceptance? (18 Dec 2009)
  16. My new doctor switched me from Humalog to NovoLog, but I am now having consistent highs. Why is this happening? Should I find another doctor to put me back on Humalog? (8 Nov 2009)

  18. What is the best time of day to take a Lantus injection? (15 Oct 2009)
