Hi out there. Our CDE is going to call me tomorrow morning for a 2 hour "advanced carb counting" class via phone.....how accommodating. What do I ask her (while I have her on the phone)???????? Any suggestions? I always seem think of something good to ask the D team AFTER hanging up, kwim? Any advice how to transition "more" easily from NPH?????? We have never changed insulins yet. Do I go for the insulin pens? I was thinking about just getting either Humalog OR Lantus in a pen to help dh not to confuse them (he has had a hard time keeping the Humalog and Humulin N vials straight). Are the pens any more "discreet" for injecting on the go? Nick is 7.5. He is 4 foot tall and 50 lbs. Dx 5/06. He takes 16 total units of NPH(15 in am and 1 at night) and 2-3 units of Humalog daily (and still tends to run on the low side). Is there any way to "guesstimate" what a "reasonable" dose of Lantus might be? The nurse told me they would start him out on a low dose of Lantus and work up till we "get it right." If they tell me 5 units to start with, do I question that or say, "sure"? I have had to tell them what I am comfortable or NOT comfortable giving him before when they suggested new doses of Humalog and NPH (especially when sick) because he tends to go low pretty easy and is JUST starting to feel them (whahooooo)!!! Thanks for reading this!!!!!!!!!
