One of the most aweful feelings.
Took my 10 units of lantus this morning and my blood sugar started dropping rapidly.
It was around 180 when I took it, it then started dropping and I took 3 tablets and a whole liquid glucose shot. My cgm showed double down arrows. I got down to 70 something and hovered between there and 90 for awhile when finally at the 1 hour since injection mark my blood sugar started going up finally.
Now if you haven't experienced this you might think 70 doesn't sound bad but with a "lantus low" your sugar drops so fast (over 100 for me in like 30 minutes while talking glucose) it feels like you're dieng inside and not knowing if it will stop dropping is one of the only times I ever truly know fear.
At this point I've been diabetic since 1991 I gave excellent control but every time I take lantus which is twice a day I live in fear.
This may finally convince be to get a pump. Not necessarily for better control throughout the day but to avoid lantus.
