Just got to reply. Been on Lantus 2 years. The control your seeking will probaly not come with Lantus because it doesn't work on carbs. Increasing the dose will not make a difference. You need a fast acting insulin. My Doc just gave me a fast acting and I've been under control all week. First time within normal in several months.1226moonwillowView Thread
Dear jasononsweets,Have been trying to get to you for a couple days, but they couldn't get me registered. I have been on Solostar for a couple of years. If your sugar remains high it can be from your carbs. I found out recently that Lantus will not affect any carbs. My scores have been high and no amount of adjusting (either units or food) was making a difference. I went to my Doc the other day and she gave a fast acting insulin. Only 5 units before meals and my sugars have dropped down to normal range ever since.First time I've had normal sugars in months.What a diffenence it makes. 1226moonwillowView Thread
