What incilin can he take until his incilin is available

Patient : 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 :   Welcome to Ask The Doctor. We are here to help you. You can't play with insulin yourself. I would advise in such si tuation 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.
