4yo kid has been on Humalog and Basaglar (which has a super flat 12 hour-ish profile) since diagnosis in September 2017.
We had a problem with not being able to get him in range of a needle while he’s at school for five hours, so he would come home at lunch with readings anywhere from 14 - 20mmol/L. So on endo’s suggestion we’ve switched to Humulin N in the mornings (instead of Basaglar, which we still do at night), which has a nice meaty peak right around snack time. Spent the weekend trying to get the dose right.
Day 1, Saturday: 2.5u. Sent him into hypo at the shops. Oops. Mental note - dial it down half a notch.
Day 2, Sunday: 2u. Kept him at a super stable but too high 12 - 14 on Sunday.
Day 3, Monday: 2u, with a more enthusiastic initial Humalogging to try get that average down. Comes home from school on 17.3 anyway.
This is a calm, commiserationy rant:)
