Back to Ask the Diabetes Team Insulin Analogs

Insulin Analogs from 2007

  1. Since switching to NovoLog, my son has been complaining about his injections burning. Why would this be happening? (12 Nov 2007)
  2. Are there any diluents to use with Levemir? (9 Nov 2007)
  3. Which insulin do you recommend for a newly diagnosed 15-month-old baby: NovoRapid or Actrapid? (9 Nov 2007)
  4. Diagnosed with LADA, I stopped insulin due to swelling. Off insulin, the swelling went away, but it returned when I resumed insulin in order to conceive. Why is the edema not dissipating? (23 Oct 2007)
  5. My son is not gaining much weight, two years after his diagnosis. Should I give him more carbohydrates/more insulin? Why does his Humalog take so long to work? (22 Oct 2007)
  6. At age 16, I am only 5 feet, 5 inches tall, partly due to high A1cs, but I now have better control of my blood sugars. If I switch to Lantus, will it help me grow? (9 Aug 2007)
  7. Diagnosed with type 1 in mid-February, my son has had daily headaches for a month. Is this related to his insulin? Is this common with well regulated pre-teens? (19 Jul 2007)
  8. Knowing what we know now about the safety of Lantus and short term insulins, why do pediatric endocrinologists still use NPH to treat new type 1 patients? (15 Jul 2007)
  9. On NovoRapid and Lantus, my sister's blood sugars are 4 mmol/L [72 mg/dl] to 8 mmol/L [144 mg/dl]. Is her dosing appropriate? Is there a cure for type 1? (3 Jul 2007)
  10. My son just switched to Lantus a month ago and takes it at night. Because his morning blood sugars are high, should he take Humalog at night as well? (30 Jun 2007)
  11. My teen has started taking one shot of Levemir in the morning. His morning numbers are high. Does he need two daily injections? (24 Jun 2007)
  12. Are NovoRapid/glargine as safe as Actrapid/Insulatard? Is there a limit to the amount of insulin one can take daily? (23 Jun 2007)
  13. I take 10 or 11 units of Humalog three times a day, plus four or five more units at bedtime. Is this a lot of Humalog compared to others? (30 May 2007)
  14. I have relatively good control of my diabetes except for elevated fasting blood sugars. Would the use of long-acting insulin, such as Lantus, be beneficial? (4 May 2007)
  15. What is the duration time for Humalog? The nurse says three hours, but it seems to last longer in my son. Should I change his pump accordingly? (8 Apr 2007)
  16. Is it beneficial to take insulin glargine with other long-acting insulins or with Mixtard 70/30 or 50/50 ? (3 Apr 2007)
  17. My daughter's pre-breakfast and pre-lunch blood sugars are in range, but testing has found highs at 9 a.m. Does she need more NovoRapid at breakfast? (3 Apr 2007)
  18. My daughter, who takes Lantus and NovoLog, has normal bedtime blood sugars, but is very high overnight. What do you suggest we do? (31 Mar 2007)
  19. To achieve glucose control, does one need a greater amount of Lantus than any other long acting insulin? (22 Mar 2007)
  20. Can Lantus help someone with type 2 who has persistent hyperglycemia? What side effects does it have? (19 Mar 2007)
  21. Since my daughter's blood sugars are out of control, the endocrinologist wants to add Lantus to her regimen of NPH and NovoLog. What would this do? (16 Mar 2007)
  22. In case of pump failure, I am supposed to inject Levemir. How do I determine the amount to dose and if I need it once a day or twice a day? (22 Jan 2007)
