Re: [IPk] mixtard



Hi Barbara


Maybe you could try speaking to your D nurse.  If I speak to my D nurse
between clinic appointments and if a change of insulin is called for she goes
to see the paediatrician and he writes a new script out.  I think he relies on
her judgement as she has been dealing with diabetes for years all the time
whereas he sees children for  many different conditions.  I just wondered if
you have thought about trying one of the faster insulins.  We had better
control with separate doses of Actrapid and Insulatard but even better control
with Novorapid.  We just swapped unit for unit.  It just makes life easier
than having to inject 30 minutes before eating.  But as they say "if it ain't
broke don't fix it" and you have had many years of diabetes and know what
works for you.

Good luck with finding some better regimen for Danielle.  Let us know what
happens.

Jackie
