I see these posts are from a while back and I'm wondering how you are doing, Andres, and if you are still taking just Lantus. I was diagnosed in Dec. 2011 and T1 has been confirmed (C-peptide test) and I also have questions about people who have long honeymoon periods or who have low insulin requirements. I managed with being only on Lantus for 6 months or so. Everything was fine but I was motivated to maintain as near normal BG as I could, so I now use Humalog with 'heavy' meals as well. Docs say it's honeymooning and there's no way to say how long it lasts... hmm.
I, too, am curious how you're doing. Hope you're maintaining those good numbers.
I was diagnosed this past spring as T1. I'm only on 10 units of Lantus and am extremely careful about what I eat so that I don't go over 140bg 72 minutes after beginning a meal.
Yeah, honeymoon, whatever. If I want to have a glass of orange juice, I drink it and then go running. 72 minutes later I'm at 98.
If I'm on holiday and want to have a bit of cereal grain with a meal, I have a glass of dry red wine with dinner. Other than that, I avoid cereal grains like my life depends on it.
Raw, vegan, run, and continue to taste the pleasures of life.
I am only on Lantus because when a endocrinologist insisted that he could give a non-diabetic 2 units of quick-acting insulin before supper and wanted me to try it, I passed out 3 nights a week, no matter what I ate for supper. I took myself off it after 3 months of trying. (This was about 9 years ago) I seem to be abnormally sensitive to quick-acting insulin - the Joslin took me off it 30 years ago (before the genetically-engineered insulins). Lantus does not absorb at an sort of a steady rate for me either, but at least most days I can stay conscious! I just have to test 8-10 times a day (definitely before starting to drive the car!)
