I received a different brand of lantus due to insurance change. Now my BS levels are lower even on the same dose. is this possible?
If one is the brand name and one is generic, there is always the possibility that it absorbs differently. Here's the thing. If insurance is requiring the generic, then you'll have to have the dose adjusted so it works for you. If your blood sugar is too low, then you need the dose of lantus lowered. If its normal, you're ok. Personally I don't think that insurance companies should be able to require a change in insulins.
