    So I recently made a very important discovery that I would like to share. Most of the threads that I wanted to post in were closed. Mainly for women and sory if it is too graphic for anyone. I have been a type 1 diabetic for a little over 20 years now diagnosed at age 10. Like man y female...
  2. Diabetes Treatment
    I've been on Metformin ER 1000x2 for the last 7 years with A1C between 6.1 and 6.9, with moderately healthy diet and exercise (no carb counting etc.). Last year my A1C shot up to 8 so I got serious and this led me to BloodSugar101 and this forum. So far the consistent message I here on this...

    My name is Teresa. I am 67 years old. I have had Type 2 for about 10 years. I live in Oregon. I am prescribed 2000 mg metformin, glipizide 20 mg, and Lantus Solostar insulin 150 units daily. I recently went on a low carb diet and stopped taking my glipizide and my lantus. Wondering if...
  4. Diabetes Treatment
    I'm so glad I found this forum. I have spent a lot of time reading and learning, since starting insulin about a month ago. Question: my doc stopped my glimepiride and started me on Lantus and Novolog. She continued the Januvia, and the DM Educator I went to said I should stay on it, too...
  5. Diabetes Treatment
    I recently started Lantus using the Solostar pen. These pens come in a box of 5 pens with 300 units in each pen or 1,500 units in a box. My starting dosage was 12 units per day with 2 units for the safety test. That makes 14 units per day. With my insurance I can get a 90 day supply of a...
  6. Diabetes Medication and Supplies
    My insatiable curiosity and a desire to battle this insidious disease prompt me to wonder what differences in results (if any) we are achieving using different regimens with LANTUS usage. For example: I am a 61 year old male, 5'10", 265 pounds. I suffered a battle with Influenza A/H1N1 in...
  7. Diabetes Symptoms
    A lil bizarre and chasing shadows but thought I would rule it out. Anyone ever have an adverse reaction to Lantus to include anxiety, depression, flush, sweating, nausea...all this rather acute after taking a large dose of Lantus? By large I mean about 60-70 units within as hour? Usual dose is...

    A little bit about myself and my journey.... I was a seemingly healthy and fit adult until a routine blood test in 2001. High non-fasting glucose levels. I was 36 at the time with an older sibling that had been diagnosed with the "stereotypical" (is there ever such a thing???) juvenile onset...
  9. Diabetes Treatment
    There's a massive difference between the temperature at work (Mon-Fri 9am-5pm) and that at home. At work it's 23-26c / 73-79f At home it's 17-21c / 62-70f Can anyone provide advice on how they think this would affect the amount of basal (Lantus) that should be taken. Presumably there's a case...
  10. Diabetes Treatment
    Can anyone provide a link to a page listing the factors that affect whether Lantus does actually last 24 hours. The company won't provide any help as they insist on their marketing that it lasts 24 hours as this is/was their Unique Selling Point. Saying that basically everyone needs 2...
  11. Diabetes Medication and Supplies
    *I commenced on Lantus five weeks ago. Since the very next day after I commenced, I have got a headache every morning about an hour after breakfast. I have never in my life had this happen before. It is bad enough to need pain killers -which I don't like having to take each day. I mentioned it...
  12. New Member Introductions
    After being Type 2 on diet then later tablets for nearly twenty years, I am now on Lantus 30 units once a day (before bed) and 4 units of NovoRapid before meals. I am having all sorts of problems getting the dosages worked out! I am either too high or too low! Aaaarrrggghhh!!! My poor body and...
  13. Diabetes Complications
    Hi, this is my first post. Thanks to diabetesforum/com for providing free forums for asking questions. Here is a general log of my sugar for the past few days. I just switched to insulin (Humalog and Lantus) and am not getting satisfactory results especially during the evening and in the...
