"I think this should be reported by your endo to the manufacturer Sanofi-Aventis. This will change the package insert because even small side effects have to be included in the insert. People with similar reactions will find this little information…"

"Never have used Lantus, but it is a fact that different people react differently to a given medication. That is absolutely true of insulins. I can't use Humalog, for instance; it might as well be a placebo for all it does. Others all work…"

Does Lantus make anyone else feel exhausted?

Has anyone else had this reaction to Lantus? I went off my pump about a year and a half ago, and have been on Lantus since then. Around the same time, I starting having issues with my energy levels. I thought it was from being tired from a month-long Europe trip, but it's gotten progressively worse. I feel awful about 27/30 days out of the month.

Hey there,
The folks of the Behavioral Diabetes Institute sent me this information about a Luncheon Honoring Women with Type One Diabetes, taking place close to San Diego, Oct. 10. Thought I'd pass it along, in case you are interested.

Thank you very much for taking the time to reply to my questions on the TYpe 1 forum. They were very helpful and I shared some of the results with my classmates in my group. I also gave them the link to the entire survey.

Thank you again!
