Since my child was dx just 3 weeks ago i know i know nothing. Whatever information I've taken in in the last few weeks is going through the filter of a sleepless, emotion-wracked brain. But two things keep rising to the surface and I keep asking the nurses at our hospital about it only to be met with a no. 1) Seems Lantus is a better insulin than NPH with no peak. Granted my son is in a major honeymoon on just 2 units of NPH at breakfast (he's 18Kg/401bs). But, he has crashes into the 60s once a day between meals. Would Lantus help with that? 2) Seems as if a lot of people her use CGM and JDRF advocates its use. But our doc will only write orders for a CGM for non-compliant patients. Are you all covering it OOP? We're happy to, but the nurse claims it's "overkill" and makes patients more nervous. Will dealing with the big D always be this frustrating and confusing? HELP!!
