    does any one get a huge knot from a injection. my sons 12 diagnosed april 2017 type1 he in the last few months gets a huge whelp it last for hours and really bothers him. any help would be greatly appreciated hes using Humalog for fast acting lantus for long lasting.... he injects all over not just one site. although lantus in the booty cheek has never caused the big bump......

    I'd ask your endo about seeing an allergy specialist. My daughter started reacting to Humalog 4.5 years in, but it showed up as staph infections with infusion sites due to the inflammation at the site. We saw an allergist, but because she wasn't reacting in an IgE manner, she couldn't be desensitized, whereas the allergist said other reactions can be.

    Sometimes it's the preservatives rather than the insulin itself they are reacting to.
