    How long does levemir take to work?

    I just had my first shot of levemir a few minutes ago. Does anyone know how long it takes to affect blood sugar? And if it keeps my bg stable for a couple hours, can I trust that I won't drop during the night?

    Like everything with this disease it can be different for each person. Levemir won't give you an instant effect, its a slow release insulin. Takes 2-3 hours for me. The best thing to do when starting a new insulin is check your bg regularly throughout the day as you will need to experiment to get your dosage right. Start extra testing and see how you get on, and up the dose or drop it if you need to. I find keeping a diary and recording bg, what you ate, activities done and dose taken helps. I would also set your alarm to wake you in the night (i know this can be a pain) and check your bg levels to ensure you dont go low until you feel you know whats going on. I half my levemir dose for my bedtime shot as I am less insulin resistant after 6pm. You might also want to look at how you split your dose, I take mine as 3 shots split into one shot every eight hours but you need to find what works best for you. Good luck.

    Basically what TonyB said is right.
    We are all different. When I was using Levemir I started on a dose of 20 units at night. Over three months I was able to taper that off to zero.
    The rules given me by my hospital doctor was to cut by 2 units each time I recorded below 80 three days running. (There was an increase rule as well but I never used that one ). I didn't find it necessary to split my dose but it (as I've now learnt) was never that high.
    I didn't find a problem with significant hypos and the lowest reading I had was a 60 on one day when I'd really worked the day before. But testing yourself is the only safe route along with keeping track of diet and exercise.
