My son was diagnosed with type 1 diabetes one week ago. He takes a shot of Lantus and Humalog in the morning, Humalog with lunch, and Lantus and Humalog with dinner. Is it okay to skip the dinner shot of Humalog if he doesn't want to eat dinner because he got up late and ate breakfast late, which pushed his lunch late to 5 p.m. He isn't hungry for dinner so can he just do a snack, and what would your recommendation be for the evening/dinner shots of Lantus and Humalog? Should he force himself to eat a late dinner at 9 or 10 p.m.? He consumes 60 grams of carbohydrates for breakfast, 90 grams for other meals.
