  1. We're off on hols to the US soon and I've heard that you need to adjust basal insulin to the new time zone. My son uses Lantus once a day at 10pm. Do we just give it at 10pm our (UK) time each day or do we adjust in some way to give it at 10pm in the US? I also hear that hot weather can reduce insulin needs - and indeed we've found that already during this hot spell at home. Any advice will be gratefully received. Thanks
