I am interested in approaching my 15 yo son’s endo for a prescription just to be used for stubborn highs. I’m not sure if he is going to approve, but I’m going to ask. We are fairly successful with Omni/Dex combo, but occasionally, due to (who knows?) timing, carbs under-calculated, under-bolused, pump failure, etc., he can go over 200 and be hard to bring down. I’d like to use it for these instances. I know of a few people doing this, but had trouble also with insurance not understanding it was adding on – not daily use. Thanks for the information!
Some parents worry that children who use inhaled corticosteroids may not grow as tall as other children. A very small difference in height and growth was found in children who were using inhaled corticosteroids compared to children not using them. 3 And one study showed a very small difference in height [about in. ( cm) ] in adults who used inhaled corticosteroids as children compared to adults who did not use inhaled corticosteroids. 4 But the use of inhaled corticosteroids has important health benefits for children who have asthma. If you are worried about the effects of asthma medicines on your child, talk with your doctor.
