Our son is 7 and was diagnosed a month ago. He's apparently in the honeymoon stage. We keep needing to drop the lantus dose and are down to .5 units before bed but still see a drop in bg of about 150 over night. To combat this, we're giving him about 60g carbs for snack before bed (his usual meals are only about 30g). His bolus is .25u to about 30g carb and he usually has a small snack between meals. We've been in constant contact with the endo clinic but have started doing some adjustments on our own. One thing I'm considering is dropping it once again to .25u. Since he's on Spring break it's the perfect time to try it. I'm also wondering about dosing the lantus in the AM so it's not so effective overnight. Does anyone do this with their kiddo? I don't expect to find a perfect sweatspot, I know his needs will continue to change, but it would be nice to find a dose that will get rid of the bedtime carb cramming and middle of the night "snacks"... which he HATES. Last night I slept through his 2 am check and I feel terrible. I don't even understand how I could have. That's a scary thing... anything can happen at night. Thank God he was 112 this am.
