I posted here once before on another topic and I recall Wilf posting this . And that is still true, though since that topic we have increased his Lantus and Humalog both quite a bit. Our last endo visit the doctor we saw said that we need to bump his Lantus up and keep doing so until he is at 10 units, and that around 10 units per day is where you want to be. I suppose that works fine for some, but it doesn't for my son. I am examining this in my mind right now because we have had crazy lows this week, most of which were in the afternoon, and some of which were in the middle of the night. I am attributing this to the fact that the weather has suddenly become very hot, and this did happen last year as well. Last year with the increase in temperature is when we saw our first 20's and LOs. So as I am adjusting doses again, I am wondering, is most of his daily insulin supposed to come from basal? Or is this a YDMV thing? Isn't it a little dangerous for the endo to make such a generalization as 10 units of Lantus being ideal for everyone? We do have 4 endos in our practice and he is the first to suggest this. And now I feel like I am making these adjustments in totally the wrong way, even though knocking his Lantus down several units has finally stopped the lows. Any thoughts?
