My 9 year old son has T1D and uses an insulin pump. When his blood glucose is high we give a correction dose of insulin through the pump as per normal protocol. In addtion, he will put 1 drop of ocotea in his hand and inhale. I can expect his bgl to come down 10 mmol/L in 1 hour-a much quicker response than using insulin alone. If his bgl is very high he will also add 1 drop of copaiba. This will bring his bgl down by an extra 5+ mmol/L in the same time period. If it is nighttime and he is asleep, I just put the oil on the most accessible part of his body-back, tummy, whatever. What a godsend!
