On my last visit my endo mentioned a new basal insulin which is in approval at the FDA and which may be out in a few months. He thought this would be good for me and would help to keep me more stable. It stays in your system longer without lows and fluctuations apparently... I tend to get that when my lantus runs out during the afternoon. I think this is it Degludec, I forgot to write the name in my phone. He said you can go for a day without basal if you miss a dose with no worries of DKA. Has anyone else heard of this?
What do you think?
I don't really understand why any of these are called patches if they are, they are just pumps aren't they? As long as you have a line inside of you I have no interest in using it at all...
that sounds hopeful, I will definitely try this when it comes to the US. Hopefully soon. Let us know how you do with it... :)
