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 for taking less for work days.

One problem is that someone messing with the controls can mean you can do get reasonable temperature occasional in the office.
It's air conditioning and nothing to do with the weather, so it's hard to predict what they will do...

I'm currently on 1 injection before bed taken around 12-1am.

It seems accepted out there that high temperatures increase the rate of insulin absorption for rapid insulins.
This means my novorapid will act quicker, but by how much and at what temperature and what they consider the normal temperature who knows.

I'm wondering if temperature has a similar effect on the rate of Lantus etc and whether it can lead to Lantus being used quicker and running out before 24 hours?
Does a rise in temperature mean increased blood flow in the body for cooling?
Does this have any effect on the way lantus etc work?
