    You will hardly ever hold Lantus at night due to it being long acting. You also don't ever want to mix Lantus with any other insulin. You can usually mix the short and intermediate insulins together, just remeber "clear before cloudy". There should be specific orders for each patients as when to hold the insulin as everyone is different. If i would do an accucheck and it was below 60 i would call the Dr for an order to hold the insulin. But then again that was the policy of the LTC facility that i worked in, you may not have to do that. Good Luck, it seems scary at first but you'll get the hang of it!!

    70/30 can be mixed with regular. Lantus can't be mixed with anything.
    I really recommend you brush up on your understanding of insulin actions and uses and such. You probably shouldn't be holding a scheduled dose for a bg under 100, but it depends on the type of insulin.
