Hi all just a quick question. For years my grandad was on 1 injection of glargine, 40-50 units to last him 24 hours until the next day, he suffered a lot with he's type 1 diabetes and recently passed away... It was taking it's toll on he's body but he died of somehing else...I can't help think, those months leading up to hes death, the steroids he was on caused he's blood sugar to be high, like 16, he would go in hospital and they would lower it for him, but he couldn't take corrections if it went high at home, yet I have Novo-rapid and wanted to give him some and was told I am not allowed, but he kept deterioting and the high blood sugars did not help. He's last months of life where constant high sugars and I think Is there a true reason for not giving it? Was it he's age?
