Back to Ask the Diabetes Team Insulin Analogs

Insulin Analogs from 2006

  1. Recently, my teen daughter had skyrocketing blood sugars with mild to moderate ketones. Corrections weren't too helpful. Could she be developing insulin resistance? (21 Dec 2006)
  2. Are there any risks associated with using Levemir while pregnant? (29 Nov 2006)
  3. Usually, my son can tell when he's hypoglycemic but, lately, he's had a funny feeling in his legs often. Could it be related to the switch from NovoRapid to Humalog? Is it related to growth? (26 Oct 2006)
  4. We are using saline to dilute NovoRapid for our nephew's pump. Will be any change in the onset or duration of action of diluted NovoRapid? (12 Oct 2006)
  5. My son, diagnosed in June, is on Lantus and Apidra. Since both have not been tested on children under six, should he be on older, "tried and tested" insulins? (27 Sep 2006)
  6. Why do I need prescriptions for my insulins? (19 Aug 2006)
  7. We are taking our daughter backpacking. She takes Lantus in the morning and Humalog with meals. Exercise makes her low. Should we reduce her Lantus? (1 Aug 2006)
  8. What are the indications to split the Lantus dose and once it is split, how do you decide which dose to adjust? (16 Jul 2006)
  9. Since going on a lower carbohydrate diet, my husband has been having serious lows. During the night, his blood sugar remains low, even after food. What is going on? (9 Jul 2006)
  10. The literature with Lantus says to use an open vial for only 28 days. Why is this? I waste a lot of insulin this way. Can I use the vial until it's empty? (29 Jun 2006)
  11. After five years with type 1, I have had to reduce my daughter's insulin significantly to prevent lows. Is this common? What should I do? (22 Jun 2006)
  12. After success with Lente, my son was put on Levemir. How do we dose his Humalog? Should we switch to a strictly carbohydrate to insulin ratio program? (21 Jun 2006)
  13. My son was dishonest when he told the doctor his insulin dosages. The doctor suggested Lantus dosages, but they are wrong. What do we do? (3 Jun 2006)
  14. Because she hates taking insulin, for dinner, my teen eats only vegetables and meat and exercises. Later, her blood sugar may be a bit elevated. Is this dangerous? (26 May 2006)
  15. Is it okay to mix Levemir and Humalog? (14 May 2006)
  16. Since going on Abilify, my daughter has needed to increase her basal insulin 75%. Is this common with this medication? Is this safe? (11 May 2006)
  17. My insulin pump has malfunctioned. How do I determine how much Lantus to take until I get a replacement? My endocrinologist is not available. (10 May 2006)
  18. To prevent morning lows, I have to ensure that my son's 2 a.m. blood sugar is elevated. Also, activity causes him to be low later. Is this normal? (20 Apr 2006)
  19. We are finding that effectiveness of glargine diminishes within the month after first using the vial. Why is this? (31 Mar 2006)
  20. My nine year old has had several nighttime lows this week even with reduced insulin. Are they perhaps caused by her Lantus? She takes it in the morning? (9 Jan 2006)
