76 units each night at bedtime
20 units!
Newly diagnosed my current dosage is 22 units at 9pm. When I was admitted into the hospital my blood glucose level was over 900. Guess I am lucky to be alive and very thankful it is treatable.
30 Units at bedtime. 20 if my numbers are low (100 & under) at bedtime.
my dosage of Lantus is 15 units at night
Anywhere from 6-14 U in the morning (I adjust this daily based on recent phisical activity level). When I am taking a lower dosage Lantus won't last all day so I will add 2U of NPH before bed so that I don't wake up high.
30 units every night before bedtime

22 units daily.
stopped smoking and BS is high, 200's.?
was below 130.
going on a month now, smoking.

My 6 year old T1 gets around 7 units every night at dinnertime. I am constantly making tiny adjustments to the amount. She needs a little more when she's been exercising a lot, and less when her activity level goes down for more than a day. Her Lantus dose sometimes needs to change for no reason at all. Or at least none that I can figure out.

I am on 18 units of Lantus at bedtime.
Then I take Novolog before meals, based on my carb intake.
My daily Novolog usually totals around 25 units.
I have been T1 for almost 37 years.

Started 21 May 2012. Currently 20u.

30 units split 20 a.m., 10 p.m.
