Presently taking 38 units Lantus. My blood sugars seem to be around 150 fasting, and feel this is a little high.
Hi Teresa, & welcome to the site. this is a question for your endoctrinologist. Most type 2 a far as I know, usually don't use insulin until other meds like metforim, glyberide, & others are tried. Do you see an endoctrinologist? What are you A-1C's? They tell more of the whole story. My hubby is also a type 2 diabetic, & has problems with controlling his glucose levels. Seeing an endoctrinologist can find out if this is all that is going on with you. My hubby found out his thyroid was too low, & several other factors that also add into the complete diagnosis. Not knowing your entire medical history, people would just be jabbing at an answer to your question so please see your doctor for futher advice. Wishing you the best ...
Hello Teresa. I take insulin because I have a sulfa allergy and can not take pills like glyburide, etc.
My type2 diabetes is controlled with long term NPH in the background and R after testing before a meal if needed. I agree that average of 150 is not good. The A1c is very important.
More info please. The R is short term. :-)
Welcome to the site.
I take Lantus as my long term insulin & I also take Novolog Flex pen as a short term insulin. I take the Novolog 3x day about 10 min. before meals. It has helped stabilize any high spikes after eating. I have also found the Flex pen to be Very convenient I use the Flex pen with my Lantus dose.
But Definitely talk to your Endocrinologist about what they may want you to try.
Best of luck & take care, Kathy
