So, I am in the process of getting a pump (Animas Ping) because I am so sick of the ups and downs and the 5-10 shots a day.. but first I need to get my insulin dosing figured out. I have a primary care dr, but I recently started seeing an endo- and they were not happy with my Lantus dose.. and neither was I.
I was at the point of having lows every single morning (usually in the 30's and 40's).. I was taking 44 units at night, and not covering night time snacks with my novolog- meaning I would go to bed at 250 and wake up at 40...
Soo, my endo has been gradually decreasing my Lantus dose from 44 to 38 now to 34, and I have to start taking it twice a day?
Has anyone else had a problem like this with Lantus? I LOVE it compared to NPH, but I thought it was supposed to be 24 hrs with no peak?
Im a little bummed that they want to figure out this problem before switching me to the pump, but I completely understand why.. I just hope it doesnt take too long :)
