Lately Ive been getting really high blood sugar readings and I'm not sure why. I have always done between 6-7 Lantus once at night and now 7 isn't even holding my blood sugar stable. The weird thing is it seems like some days I have good blood sugar doing 7 Lantus and then other days my fasting blood sugar goes up and I'm high all day. Should I increase my Lantus even more to 7.5? I might try 7.5 and see how that works. I'm injecting in my butt area and there seems to be more scar tissue there, I wonder if that would effect the Lantus. I was thinking about switching to Levemir because of the bad studies out about Lantus and because its not as acidic.
I am a lot less active and havent been working out except for light walks. Maybe I do just need an increase.

Are you rotating your injection sites? Sometimes insulin is not absorbed properly if the sites are used too often. It causes changes to the underlying subcutaneous tissue. My lower abdomen is shot (literally) and I notice much higher (and inexplicable) BG's if I put my infusion site anywhere near there. Best thing to do is rotate in a circle when you give your injections and try not to use one site more than once a month if you can.
