Re: Diabetes Type I
First off, Taking Lantus about 1pm, not only seems ODD, but it takes a while before the Lantus starts being effective, plus yesterdays dose in in its final decline. That alone would give me reason to thing TIMING is part of the problem. I don't have a link handy but if you look up an chart on Lantus and graph of its effectiveness over a 24hr period, you will see what I mean. Lantus is a great basal, I love it, but its not flat from the moment you inject till 24hrs later.
ALL insulins have a a rise, levle off a little, peak (lantus is very minor and gradual, then ALL insulins decline at various rates after their peak. Lantus declines very slowly.
I have been on a split Lantus dose for over 4yrs and its as rock solid and stable as can be for me. By splitting the dose half when I get up and half aprox 12hrs later, one dose is increasing its effective level while the other is declining. That way there is never a peak of the full daily lantus dose nor is there a lack of basal due to timing (the rise and fall of lantus effectiveness.
