Does anyone have a problem with knowing how Lantus will work? I take it at bedtime and never know how much it will lower my blood sugar overnight. Sometimes it stays almost the same, and other…Continue
"I am on Synthroid. Does anyone else have numbers in the normal range but still have problems; i.e., brittle, flaking nails, hair loss, fatigue? Each time I mention it to my Endo he brushes it off and says, your numbers look good. My A1c is not…"
"Kathyann, just wondering.....do you take your morning Lantus the same time as your Humalog before breakfast (I know you cannot mix the two - I have a separate pen for each), or do you wait and take it a little later?"
"I did last summer mostly because it started malfunction (the up button wouldn't work so I couldn't dose for boluses) and it was past warranty. If you are considering a pump it might be worth waiting out the year or next because several of…"
"Type 1 for 43 years, pumping for the last 7 and sometimes want to go back on MDI, but I HATE SHOTS.

Hi, Painter- I do use Lantus (usually between 10-12 units) sometimes I drop overnite 30-40 points and sometimes I go up 40-50 points. Maybe you should lower your dose if you tend to drop so much. Every body reacts differently to any insulin on any given day. Also, log what
you eat for your last meal at night for a few days, because I'm sure you know fats can raise
your BG hours after you eat. You really have to play with your doses. When do you take your Lantus ? Some people take it in the morning and some at night, you might have to adjust your time of dosage. Check out the group Lantus and you can start a discussion & get more input.
Welcome ,Painter ! I am also a T-1. I was Dx'ed at age 55 and have had D for 11 years. I also take shots ( Lantus & Humalog .) There are groups for people taking shots and using
