I agrre with the splitting of the levimir. If I remeber right it was designed to be taken in 2 doses. I would also suggest if the highs and lows continue that you consider switching to lantis. Most people can do really well on 1 dose a day and it is a much flatter acting than others I have used.

Splitting Levemir is a standard practice. At smaller doses in particular it can have a much shorter duration of action than the 24 hours advertised. Read the prescribing information that comes with Levemir - the duration chart is very interesting.

Well that could be our next option, so far things are looking promising with the lower dosage of Levimir.
Thanks Guys
