Hey guys! First post as I am desperate for help.
I (F,22) have had type one for the last 13 years with relatively no hiccups.
This October my basal insulin (Lantus, 28u) started causing insane lows. I would need about 100g of carbs to fix a low from 1-2 u of insulin. I’m talking like 60 with 2 down arrows.
Ok so i started dialing back the basal. I ended up at 12 u of lantus that would crash me during the day and leave me high overnight. After 3 weeks of the i went to the ER, did telehealth visits with my doc. The hospital basically said we are unqualified for this my doctor kept saying put the lantus back where it was.
I decided to change to tresiba 14u At first it was amazing!! Normal life again! But now about every 2 weeks i have to add an additional unit to the basal due to constant high glucose. like eating nothing and trending up. I am now at 15u and up trending again.
Is it possible my basal is slowly returning to normal? My doctor is useless and I am trying to find a new one.
