Just looking for a bit of advice. My son has been taken off his long acting insulin during the day and only needed for night/bed. I used to do give it to him 10/10 but now I'm not sure what time to give it to him.

I’d check with his team @Clairel Did they say anything that might give you a clue what they were expecting eg did they say “Drop the morning one” (implying leave the 10pm one) or did they just say once a day? It’s unusual to drop the morning one rather than the evening one, and my main concern would be ensuring he didn’t go low overnight.

So he was originally on 0.5 in the morning and then 2 units in the evening. They took him off yesterday as the levimir during the day was bringing him down to fast. I will call them tomorrow. I'll just give to him at 10 to be safe.
