Can Too Much Lantus Cause High Am Bg's?

I am a type 1A diabetic with normal insulin sensitivity and predictable bg responses to insulin doses. Until now. I went on a reducing diet (high protein, next to 0 carbs, increased exercise) but never decreased my once daily PM dose of Lantus (10 units.) Immediately my AM bg's jumped to over 200 and stayed there. No hypoglycemia during sleep (I never woke up, anyway.)I could bring my daily bg's down with my shortacting insulin. I increased the PM dose of Lantus by 1 unit and found the next day my am bg was even higher. And still, no hypo's waking me up from sleep. I suspect that Lantus' action is so flat that it may cause hypoglycemia that the liver responds to but does not cause the usual hypoglycemic symptoms. I know this pattern is seen when Lantus is used with cat diabetics. My cat was getting bg's from 300-450for 2 years until I started dropping his dose; he is now stabilized on 1/2 the dose he used to get! He never had any hypos; the only symptom of too much Lantus was superhyperglycemia. I suspect this happens with humans too, and me in specific, but I've not seen anything mentioned in any literature or posting mentioning this phenomena. Continue reading >>

    Can Too Much Lantus Rasie Blood Sugar?

    I've been noticing that the more Lantus I take, the higher my fasting number is. When I back off the dosage, the fasting number goes down too!
    Just wondering if anyone else is having similar problems???

    Not sure i understand why this presents a problem. The goal is lower fastings, attained by using as little insulin as possible, right? What am I missing here?

    Pastor Paul I have noticed some weird things happening while taking Lantus. I have had to skip my bedtime dose several times. I had surgery done in February and didn't take any Lantus the night before and my blood sugar was perfect all day. I skipped a dose one night when I just didn't want to take it and my blood sugar was perfect all day. The beginning of March I started to decrease the dose because I was having too many lows and I really haven't notice much change. The only change is that my FBS is a little higher, but that is what I wanted the decrease in dosage to do. My FBS is between 75 and 85. I think that there are some things about insulin which we just don't have an answer for. I have read that your basal insulin should be 70% of your TDD.

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???

  2. KA kaismama

    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 >>
