I have a question about the need for syringes.
My son is leaving for college for the first his freshman year. I am not too worried about him managing his d because he's not let me in that area of his life for some time. (grrr, but that's another story - but I will say that he has very good A1Cs)
He is a pump wearer and I've packed his supplies for the semester, etc etc. The dr. office gave him a levimir <sp?> pen as a long acting insulin in case of pump failures and he will have novolog pens as well. Do i really need to send him with emergency syringes to use his novolog from the bottles? Are teh pens/needles enough?
I also need to look up Levimir. My kids haven't been withoug the pump for over 7 years and te last time we used a long acting it was Lente. I don't think that's even on the market anymore.
Any opinions? Or info on the long acting insulin?
