Patient

Q: Hi my son is 22 years old hes taking humilin70/30 but hes out and his prescription isn't ready can he take humilog or luntus for now

Doctor

A:   Welcome to Ask The Doctor.
We are here to help you.

You can't play with insulin yourself.
I would advise in such situation to take Only Humilin insulin (30:70) twice a day.
The dose would be decided on the basis of her Blood sugar levels.
Lantus insulin can be given but dose decision would be based on his blood sugar levels.
I would advise you to get her Kidney function tests and HbA1c done.

I hope this helps.
Stay Healthy.
