If your lantus is cold it will sting. Not sure about the after injection pain though. Wish I zxould be more helpful. Good luck.

After a nice 2 year honeymoon, my insulin production has decreased enough that my endo has started me on a low dosage of Lantus. It's only been 5 days, and I'm still evaluating my numbers. What is bothering me most, at the moment, is the pain from the injections. The first three nights were no big deal, but two nights ago, it hurt when I did my injection and it really hurt last night. Plus, it bled a little and about 30 minutes later there was a quick flash of pain around the injection area. I've done all of them around the same area as instructed. I alternate sides every night. Am I doing something wrong to make it hurt like this?

The 24 hr. Lantus and Levemir don't usually last 24 hours. That is the reason I split up my 10units of Levemir to 5mg in the AM and 5mg in PM.

I use Lantus twice a day AND Januvia at breakfast time.I have gained 12 pounds since ... but... I also been having stressful things happen.Like falling on my face twice in 2 weeks! Life still full of grief and I walk around in a low level shock a lot. I see a counsellor but will put myself on a waiting list for grief counselling soon.Long waiting list

I use both in my regimine as well as amaryl and metformin... I mostly do pretty well unless I guess wrong about the carbs in a particular meal...

Definitely try splitting the dose.
Comment by Emmy on May 23, 2011 at 10:11pm
@ Chaplain - Your blood sugar is higher in the morning because the previous day's shot of Lantus is wearing off as the morning progresses. For some people, Lantus does not last a full 24 hours. You might have better numbers if you split your dose in two, and had one shot at 10:30 am and one at 10:30 pm. Also, you probably need a slightly higher dose than you're taking now. You should discuss these options with your doctor of course.

I found that I did better with a split dose.

Julia; I'm just on Lantus. I inject 25 units at 10:30 pm, and that is supposed to carry me through the day. But I'm also on two different pills during the day. My biggest problem is I'm usually higher in the morning before breakfast (in the 130's) than I am before dinner (supper?). I spiked about 230 one morning, though, and panicked! Called the ER, and they just said, watch it. I like the SoloStar, though. It's so easy to use! And, I'm only 67, so it doesn't confuse me as much. lol

Hi all.. new to this group and site...

Just wanted to say hi and introduce myself. I go to a clinic (no insurance) and my only option is lantus and humalog. Im not doing great and I know I can do better on a different regiment but this is what is keeping me alive, I suppose.
Comment by Julia on April 20, 2011 at 3:28pm
Stuff it! No I'm just kidding(: I really dont know why. I take Humalog and Humalin in the morning before school, so I dont have to inject at school. Then I take Humalog right before dinner to cover that. Then before bed I take some Lantus and eat a snack. So, maybe that will explain it a little. My doc just put me on three insulins, I guess just because she can(; How many insulins are you on, Chaplain ET?
