Submitted, doi: Link to article Abstract Objective: To investigate whether there is an association between use of ACE inhibitors (ACEI) and angiotensin receptor blockers (ARB), and risk of acute kidney injury (AKI). Design: A time-updated, new-user cohort study among people initiating common antihypertensives (ACEI/ARB, beta-blockers, calcium channel blockers and thiazide diuretics) in primary care between April 1997 and March 2014.

Main outcome measures: Incidence rate ratio (RR) for first episode of AKI during time exposed to ACEI/ARB compa Continue reading >>

    My Endo has recommended switching my morning Levemir to nighttime since my fasting still remain high. She mentioned I could make up when it wears off at my dinnertime insulin.
    I am a bit concerned about overnight lows taking it at night. I know that it is not a strong peak like fast acting but it still worries me.
    Does anyone have any suggestions on what to do when switching to nighttime to avoid lows.
    I went up from 4-5 in the morning with still no luck. That is why I have finally decided to try doing it at night to see what happens.

    Not sure, but Levemir has a distinct peak, and that can be used to take care of DP, if taken late at night.
    My Endo is having me try this in a couple weeks.
    Tricky part: with a lower dose, it may peak earlier. I suspect I will be spending a few nights waking up regularly, to check my BG ... just to make sure!

    I will be interested to hear how this is going for you. Thanks for the info. I guess the only way to know is to do it and find out how it is working for me. I always worry since I have little kids and my lows should kick in when they are around.
