Type 1 diabetes is a complex disease to manage, and with the difficulties you are having I suggest finding a doctor who is experienced in managing type 1 diabetes. With your son’s current insulin, I wouldn’t suggest using corrective doses post the meal in view of the longer acting nature of the insulin, as this may cause problems of low glucose. The ideal way to manage the problem to use carbohydrate counting, which is where you match the insulin to the carbohydrates in the meal. This needs to be worked out by an experienced dietician and doctor.
