A lot of your message hit the nail on the head. I am a type 1 diabetic and take injections. I was on 40 units of Lantus at night, sliding scale before meals, and 4 Glucovance pills a day. I am overweight and have been for years. Now I'm experiencing diabetic problems, with eyes and heart. I was in denial for years and finally had to face the music. So with my new problems, I lost weight. Still have more to lose. The problem with taking me off the Reg is because of morning lows. The doctor suggested I go off the Reg and just use the Lantus. My problem is that I can control my sugar with Reg and feel a little bit hesitant to totally get off it. As I know Lantus doesn't peak and works for 24 hours, my question is does Lantus alone work for others that have gone off the Reg. I don't want my sugar out of control anymore. I can't afford to be foolish with it anymore. Its real and by all hopes, it goes away, if I can take the rest of the extra weight off. Then controlled by diet.
