I take 160 units a day, I still have bg levels in the 200's in the morning can't get them down. I here so many wonderful stories about how Lantus is so great, but it is not working for me no matter how much I take.
I take 9 units of Lantus and I'm a type 1. If the day is ok I have my blood sugar at 8O in the morning, and I use Apidra at meals. Lantus works well with me. My shot of Lantus is at 7 in the morning. 160 units! Do you tell your endo about?
I actually got up to 180 units a day. My Dr. finally took me off and put me on Levemir. But now I have to adjust to that as well. My Dr. also told me the Lantus was most likely causing my weight gain too. Thanks for your help.
Well I finally am off Lantus. So long, good ridence. I take Levemir and novolog R now. I am still having troubles with my bs but I have to adjust the dose. My Dr. said Lantus and Lyrica are 2 meds that does make you gain. And I sure don't need to do that.
That's tough when a Person can't keep their numbers in the good range all or most of the time. Sometimes the Insulin stops working. You sound like you're Insulin Resistant.
I take 12 units soon after I awaken and 12 units normally 12 hours later. I do wish some People wouldn't paint everyone with the same brush. I've been on Insulin for 47+ years and on Lantus for about 2 1/2 years. I've never gained an ounce from Insulin. And I know others who haven't gained from it either. So you can tell your Dr. for me and the others that he is full of it(in nicer words, of course). I did gain weight from eating too much and the wrong foods on occasion when I fell off the wagon, when I quit smoking and when I had Hypothyroidism, I gained weight also. No much though. Lantus works Well for me. I hope that the Levemir works for you more effectively. Good Luck. :)
