Discussions that mention levemir

Diabetes board


I relate to you. Same was going on with me. Endo told me you get to a point where you have to take insulin. The meds are not working, and especially for morning highs.

I have been in insulin 5 months now and am feeling better, however the insulin needs a bit of a tweeking still, the mornings are still a bit high.

I take rapid before meals according my readings and Levemir ( long lasting) at bedtime.
My A1C was 8.4 before the insulin and now it has dropped back down to the 6 level which is good, but could be better.
Taking insulin is so easy now. The pens are great....:angel:

Thanks for this response. I think you are correct. My doctor told me to wait until my next A1C test. I have some other issues coming up so I think I will. - sam
