    Just got a call from Cj, he's at his dad's. He overdosed on Lantus by 28 units. He is supposed to take 22 in the morning and took 50. Should I expect him to run low all day or is this a wait and see situation?

  2. CJ's Mom

    .....and should I keep his p.m. Lantus the same as always, just go back to the old routine? Just our luck this would happen while we're between doctors.
    I'm off to the dreaded Wal-mart to get some carb loaded food, although, at 7:30 a.m. it shouldn't be crowded.

    i would say yes he will probably run low you may be able to get away with just not covering his food today but i honestly dont know since i dont now how the lantus effects him everyday. i would just check very often and have sugary foods on hand (as you already know) as for the night lantus if his first dose is usually wearing off by the time the night dose is due than yes i would do the normal dose but if he is have alot of low low bg i would maybe cut it back a bit .i'm sure someone with more experiance with lantus and someone that knows you better will get on soon and help you. Good luck. He'll be fine
