where people touched by diabetes help each other.

My daughter has her endo appt today and her carb ratio is 1:3. Endo says that's pretty insulin resistant. After teenage years will she need less insulin or will she always have this ratio?

it changes throughout our lives based on numerous things. the type/brand of insulin can even be a factor. As an example, for me, i use the least amount of insulin with Apidra, A little bit more (about 25% more) with Novolog, but have a very high resistance to Humalog. Temerature, time of year, time of month (for women), diet, level of regular physical activity, etc. ALL play a part in our sensitivity to insulin.

I used the most insulin when I was a teenager. I used to use for example 33 units of Lantus as my basal, now at 27 I only use 20 units. Once she's out of puberty her insulin use will def change
