I am currently using Lantus, 13 units at 6 PM daily. I also use my pump for my overnight basal needs if I am sick of the pen stick every night and I feel like tubing up from 6 PM to 6 AM. I am giving some thought to switching to Tresiba and giving up Lantus that I have been taking for several years now and of course the pump, which I hate to use even just for over night basal delivery. Hate the tube.
My questions are:
- What would be a good starting daily dose of Tresiba to replace 13 daily units of Lantus.
- Lantus can sometime add a sting and pain to the injection routine. Does Tresiba come with a sting or injection pain?
Any thoughts will be appreciated.
