[IPk] Glargine

 My 11 yr old son has been diabetic since he was 18mths old and has always been
on multiple injections, despite never really having good control. I've recently
managed to get a referral to a new consultant as his current one won't even
discuss a pump. The specialist nurse has mentioned that my son will probably
have to trial a regimen of glargine and quick acting insulin injections before
being considered for a pump. I'd be grateful for any fedback from anyone who has
had to trial this regimen before a pump to try and get an idea of its
effectiveness and possible drawbacks as the evidence for the use of glargine
with kids seems to be pretty scant.
Many thanks for any help.
