Discussions that mention levemir

Diabetes board

I am running into the same...I took Levemir for a year and had itching and red welts at injection site. My sugars were high in the mornings all the time. My endo put me off and told me to change vials of insulin. Well this happened with every vial....I take rapid before meals also and do not have this problem with it...Finally I asked to be taken off Levemir and put on Lantus and within 2 weeks I noticed a big differance in my readings. The change was made by my family DR.
Perhaps you need to try a different type of insulin...Maybe even Levemir could help you instead of Lantus...

I hate when we complain to DR's and I even showed them the welts and redness and basically was told it was in my head and this couldn't be happening...What are we to do then....:mad:
