I wouldn't worry about the side effects of Toujeo. Since Lantus (Sanofi's cash cow insulin) is coming off patent, they wanted to add to their insulin lineup for financial reasons. Regardless which insulin one starts on, it takes tweaking and adjustments and time to get the dosage right.

But - I can't urge you enough to think about making some tweaks to your diet. It can be a process. Baby steps. You needn't look at it as having to make drastic huge change if that's overwhelming, but small ones.

It's like a sedentary person staring out walking just 5 minutes, then 10, and before they ever expected they're walking miles without breaking a sweat.

Yes you are very correct. I will start to work on my diet and try to go to the gym slowly. I guess when I got on insulin I expected immediate results and especially with Toujeo it's longer. Also the doctor is trying to get me to take Lisinopril or Lorstan. I'm afraid of it affecting my kidneys and liver is anyone else on these medicines?

Lisinopril and other ace inhibitors make me cough incessantly. I've been taking Losartan for several years without any problems that I'm aware of.

I'm on Lisinopril, cough!! It is supposed to be protective of kidneys, but it probably doesn't do that for everyone.

Hi. It's been a little while since I've been on here. I was wondering does insulin cause acne? I've been breaking out all over my face and neck it's horrible. I'm so disappointed and stressed out. I started insulin but my sugar is still 250-300 with 18 units at night. I'm still lethargic. I've gained 4 pounds and I'm breaking out like crazy.

I did an Internet search on "insulin and acne" and came up with several sites.

Here's one that does a good job of explaining what happens. It's not directed to diabetics, but does explain the role of insulin in the development of acne.

I don't see anything relating toujeo to acne doing a quick look at Google but it lists pruritus (itching) and rash and allergic reaction as adverse reactions.

Have you changed your diet any yet? Ditching most of the carbs will work wonders on the BG numbers.

Thanks for the links. Ugh. Everything just makes me depressed. It's only been a few weeks and I'm tired of the needles. I literally sit there for ten minutes trying to poke my fingers. Even tho it hurts much less with the genteel. I'm like dripping in sweating by the time I'm able to do anything. My relative is still giving me the shots and my sugar is still high. It's hard for me to not eat sugar and carbs because I guess I'm an emotional eater. I'm not overweight by much. I'm 5' 7" and 145 pounds. But I'm just addicted to sugar.

Ever more reason to go LCHF which should end the cravings after a few days or a week or so. But since you're taking insulin, you should check your BG and adjust your insulin dose to prevent going hypo.

:Have you looked at any of the recipes in the diet and nutrition section of this site. My husband especially loves the peanut butter fat bombs. it is good made with Truvia. Truvia has GMO erithritol so I ordered Erithritol non gmo type and that works. I also make the low carb cheese cakes. Neither of these has a large effect on Ronnie's BG. It is hard to get started on the diet but when you think that you can have butter and cream and bacon. That is so much better than the ADA diabetic diet with too many Carbs. I fried bacon tonight and made a salad and turned it into the southern delicacy known as a wilted salad. You fry the bacon and poor the bacon grease and all over the salad that contains boiled eggs along with your favorite lettuces and tomatoes and what ever other salad ingredients except croutons or craisins or fruit. Do you like eggs, You can eat them and you can have cream cheese The food is good. Give it a try. You will feel so much better when the sugar is down. right now your diabetic complications can probably be reversed but maybe not if you wait to to long. With Ronnie, The ketogenic type diet helps stop seizure activity while we decrease his seizure meds.
