    My heart is broken for you guys, I'm so sorry. I really can't imagine, but I'm glad her sister is there for her, that has to help.

    My heart sunk when I read the subject line and saw the OP?s name. I almost feel like there are more identical twins on this board where only one twin is D, than there are sets of identical that are both D.

    @Mimi I think you did the right thing by having C enrolled in trial net. I hope that she will be on just lantus for like at least 5 or 6 years, and that better basal insulins and treatments will emerge in that time frame.

    I am currently using lantus and blousing through the pump. I can honestly say that right now I am finding that lantus burns like an SOB.

    Maybe bc she is going through a slow onset she could get away with just one shot of levemir a day.

    I don?t think I am a wuss. I insert silhouettes manually and don't bat an eye, but the lantus has been killer painful lately. I find Injecting it through the pen is way more painful, and the burning can last for like 2 minutes. I have been taking 50 units though :(
