For the first few months that I learned I had diabetes my doc was big on checking my morning BG level. She then had me tweeking my Lantus units that I took before bed. That basically got me in a range that I needed. However, after learning about how my body responds to it, I have switched to checking my BG before bed and adjusting the number of units I need. After a couple of weeks I found that my method works very well. I now use from 4 to 10 units depending on where I'm at BEFORE bed.

Just thought this might be a helpful tip for others. Once you get to know your body, it's quite useful to dial in how much Lantus you actually need at bedtime. :)

My doctor told me only to test 2 times per week. I am so glad I didn't follow his advice . By testing 3-5 times a day I pretty much know how my body works. I now know how often I need to eat to prevent a liver dump . I also know that eating after a certain time will mess up my fasting bgs.
