I think you are misjudging my intentions. I have sent letters and received responses from my local and provincial representative. I was wondering if you were getting a similar message. My signature tag was modified in Jan 2010, just under 3 months after being diagnosed. Notice it says we added Lantus? I asked at our first quarterly endo appointment for the script as I felt I could manage the extra shot at school. I also felt overnights would be easier without the spike NPH has and we would be able to get lower A1C's by using Lantus as our basal insulin. Not all parents can manage lunch time shots at school and that makes the use of NPH very helpful in that scenario. Sometimes primitive tools can be very useful if you know how to use them.
