    Hello all, it has been a while since I have been on here.
    I have been off of the pump for over a year and had been using Humalog and Levemir with good luck, A1c running around 6.6 for a few years straight.
    I had a little run in with a rare cancer that is very treatable, pulmonary neuroendocrine carcinoma, also known as a carcinoid tumor.
    After the surgery to remove my lower right lobe, everything went awry on me. This thing had been in there slowly growing and reaking havoc on my endocrine system since about 2003 apparently.
    But the thing I noticed is that the Levemir I was on pretty much stopped working at all, it never worked great, had to take it 3 times a day and huge amounts of it.
    On the pump, my basal rate was around 35 units a day of Humalog, I had to inject 30 units 3 times a day of Levemir, but it pretty much stopped working at all so I was constantly correcting with Humalog.
    My Doc wants me to use Toujeo, but my insurance is requiring a prior authorization because Levemir and Tresiba are preferred. Obviously Levemir is out, but I have not tried Tresiba, can anyone give me the good and bad on it?
    Is it similar to Levemir or is it a true 24 hour insulin like Toujeo?
    When I was on MDI before, I was using Humalog and Lantus, and Lantus was not truly 24 hours for me, I had to split the dose and take 3/4 of it at night and the rest in the morning.
    Thanks for any information you have.

    Confuzzled, my sister uses Tresiba. She likes it. Really works on her for 24 hours. She takes 1 shot in the morning.

    Thanks Marilyn, I will keep Tresiba in mind for possible use in the future.
    I guess my doc wants me on Toujeo enough to do the paperwork for the prior authorization, so I guess I will give it a whirl.
    Still haven't gotten it dialed in just yet, taking 50 units at 6 pm but I am still getting some DP, so I end up correcting each morning.
    Might try adjusting the times to get that under control, but I don't want to go any later than 8 pm as I have gotten used to early bed times now....
    Thanks, Dale
