"I was diagnosed at age 5 myself, but things were a bit harder in 1956. Anyway, 1 thing that affected me after using NPH for some years was that the response time varied wildly at times, with no clue as to why. Made control a lot harder, so I was…"

"Welcome, Kendra! My heart goes out to you. I've had to deal with my own Type 1 diabetes but only since I was 41. The thought of having one of my sons diagnosed as a child is daunting, to say the least. You sound like a wonderful, caring,…"

"Hey Kendra, I'm like a few here - diagnosed at your sons age as well - but for me it was back in the 60's when there was only certain types of insulin (I injected once a day until the 80's I think - my sponge brain doesn't go…"

"If he was dropping on the fast-acting insulin, wouldn't it be because you used too much insulin for the food? Or, as in our case, the duration of insulin action is four and a half to five hours. So we have to check my niece's blood sugar…"

"Welcome to the community Kendra! Another thing to consider is that the pump can deliver very precise doses on insulin-- much smaller doses that can be delivered with a syringe. So if he is very sensitive to Humalog, then the pump could be a good…"

"Great feedback from everyone on injections vs pump. I use the Ping and I love it. If he is willing to test often then the pump could help. Check out the site that Arielle suggested. That will help alot I think The DexCom is a continuous glucose…"

Ray Marino replied to Kendra's discussion 'Ping Pump or Injections?'
"Since your son is on 2 shots NPH already. I might start out with 2 shots of Lantus 1 every 12 hours. I would then try to find out when he needs some humalog maybe at dinner or lunch. You need to experiment how much Humalog he needs to cover certain…"
