Levemir dosage: Based on your weight -- 0.1 to 0.2 units per kg (about 0.045 to 0.09 units per pound) once a day in the evening.

A general standard starting dose -- 10 units once or twice daily.

Since its a diabetic med & or hyperglycemia could be involved in the morning, it is advised to seek medical attention from the doc who prescribed the dose according to the response to the starting Levemir dose (as measured by your blood sugar levels) to recommend any dose changes.

Take care, best wishes!
