Lantus Triggering A Rise In Blood Sugar??

Lantus triggering a rise in blood sugar?? Friend T1 since 1998, Novorapid x3 daily Lantus x1 Lantus triggering a rise in blood sugar?? I have noticed in the past fortnight that in the first hour (sometimes 2) after injecting Lantus, there is a rise in my blood sugars. I'm currently injecting 14 units at 10pm and 14 units at 10am For example tonight, I ate supper at 5pm and injected my novo accordingly. This all worked out fine and by 9pm I was back down to 5.6 mmol/l (100). At 10pm I was 5.2 mmol/l (94). I injected my Lantus and 45 mins later I had risen to 7.8 mmol/l (140)........... by morning I'm back in range again. This KEEPS happening, morning and night. I'm fairly certain this isn't anything to do with my food or novorapid. Is it possible that when the body recognises Lantus entering the blood stream, it responds by putting out some glugogen?? If so how can I combat this?? Any suggestions or comments on this theory welcome. Lantus takes about an hour and a half to reach it's full potential or maximum effectiveness. It could be that it doesn't last exactly 24 hours in you, so it's running out when you inject and then it takes it over an hour to reach full effectiveness....pe Continue reading >>

    Hi- I am type 2 diabetic, have been taking lantus solostar for over a year and it just isn't?

    ... working. My doctor has had me on 12 units a bedtime, along with oral meds daily. Glucose are up in the 400s, doctor is yelling at me to get them under control and I have been doing everything I can, even starving myself. I am sitting here in tears because she upped the lantus to 15 units twice a day, and for the past 5 days, still no change. I am frustrated, tired, angry and want to give up and who cares! What should I do???

    Find another dr. Oviously the lantus isn't working for you. Either that or the oral meds aren't but you need an evaluation fast since you're blood sugar is so high. Are you seeing an endocrinologist? Truthfully, I think I'd go to the er if I had a blood sugar that high, and all your doc did was have you take lantus twice a day instead of once. Something is going on and your dr is not finding out what. You could have an infection too. They drive your blood sugar up.

Frequently Asked Questions

The Dumbest & Smartest Things A Doctor Ever Told Me I eat a low fat diet, so why is my cholesterol level still high? Why are my blood sugars higher in the morning than when I go to bed the night before? This typically occurs due to the dawn phenomenon. The dawn phenomenon is the rise in blood glucose levels in the dawn (that is, the morning) due to excessive release of glucose from the liver into the blood. Here is a graph of a person’s blood glucose readings measured with a device (a “continuous glucose monitor”) that automatically measures the body’s glucose level about 300 times per day (each colour represents a different day): As you can see in the preceding graph, every day starting at about 3am this person’s glucose levels started to go up. This individual, like so very many others living with diabetes who have high blood glucose levels first thing in the morning, blamed themselves and attributed their elevated morning blood glucose to having overeaten or snacked the night before. Not so! What they (and you) eat at bedtime (or suppertime) seldom is a significant factor in leading to high blood glucose levels the next morning; heck, the food you ate the night befor Continue reading >>

    Hi everyone!
    I am a 30 year-old male and have been diabetic for 16 years. I am currently using novorapid and lantus injections to manage my blood sugar. Generally speaking my blood sugar control has been pretty good over the years but just lately I have had some problems where, when I have done a blood test my levels have been very high (15+ in some cases.) I have made an adjustment innjection to bring the levels down but after an hour my levels are still high, sometimes even higher than they were before. It is as though the insulin is not having an effect at all! Has anybody else experienced anything similar?
    I sometimes work abroad and the first time this happened to me was when I was spending a few weeks in South Korea - at first I put it down to something in the food however it has since happened to me back in the UK too. Any help would be greatly appreciated as it's obviously a little unsettling to feel unable to bring my sugar levels back under control!
    Cheers

    Two quick thoughts
    a) are you varying your injection sites ? Sometimes if you use a site frequently over many years that area can develop fatty deposits that make insulin absorption less predictable.
    b)As you seem to be travelling a lot is some of your insulin being subjected to extremes of temperature? Have you tried changing to a new pen when this happens>

    Hi, I am a 47 year old Type 1 and have been for 33 years. I have always had really good control, apart from the odd blip here and there. I had exactly the same problem as you. It seemed that no matter how much Insulin I gave myself my blood sugars would not go down, I was averaging between 15 and 24, which worried me sick. Then I would drop to about 1.8, it seemed like the insulin wasn't working at all and then suddenly it did and lowered my blood sugars too much. In desperation I contacted my Diabetic Nurse and she gave me guidelines on what dosages to give myself depending on my blood sugar. She also told me not to test too often as I was so worried that I was testing about 12 times a day. Luckily now I am slowly getting back to normal, but it has taken about 5 weeks to get there.

Getting High Blood Sugar Levels Under Control

Getting high blood sugar levels under control Getting high blood sugar levels under control A 70-year-old man with a history of type 2 diabetes takes insulin glargine (Lantus) 100 units every morning (he is afraid of developing hypoglycemia at night) and insulin aspart (Novolog) 20 units with each meal. However his blood sugar is still around 250 mg/dL. Can the Lantus dose be increased, and if so, to what? Or should the patient be switched to insulin detemir (Levemir) twice daily? Can the dose of Levemir be greater than 100 units? What else would you suggest for this patient? If your patient's blood sugars are in the 250 range all day, he likely needs more insulin. Patients with type 2 diabetes will routinely need 1-2+ units/kg body weight per day. If he is requiring more than this, one should look for factors that might increase insulin resistance (infection, Cushing syndrome, etc.), noncompliance, or incorrect administration. (I have discovered that some patients who were supposed to be taking multiple shots of insulin per day were injecting air and not insulin!). There is no maximum dose of glargine per se, although at doses >100 units, I usually prescribe this agent b.i.d. In Continue reading >>
