"Hello! We started my seven year old son on Apidra two weeks ago and I am shocked and amazed at how easy the transition has been. His breakfast spikes were 275-350 and now he barely spikes above 175-200. He is completely flat and stable at night. We…"

"I am with you, Jen. I have always hated the 9:30 snack especially when most kids have junk. We are new to pumping so I have never "corrected" until the next meal with MDIs. (The 2 times in 18 months we got a needle out to correct a high at…"
"Right now I have been giving my daughter(3 yr old) a no carb snack in the morning for that very reason - the first day on the new schedule they accidentally tested and corrected and she went to 45 by lunch but now it is under control - I wish…"
