The study was conducted by Diabetes Foundation of India (DFI) and National Diabetes, Obesity & Cholesterol Foundation (N-DOC) along with Fortis C-DOC Centre of Excellence for Diabetes, Metabolic Diseases and Endocrinology. Around 90 people with fatty liver were enrolled into the study. The results of the trial, conducted over six months, demonstrated multiple health benefits, along with the possibility of averting several chronic and often lethal diseases, just by repl Continue reading >>

    Background:
    I am a very overweight Type 2. I started Metformin about 5 years ago. Somewhere along the way I was switched to a Metformin/Glyburide combo. A few years ago 50 units Lantus at bedtime was added. Last November I began using Humalog with meals. Shortly after starting the Humalog, I asked to be taken off Glyburide. After stopping the Glyburide, I gradually adjusted until I was taking 70 units Lantus at bedtime. This worked for months. Months!!!! My A1c went from 9.1, to 6.9, to 5.7. My I:C and Correction Factors seemed right. I knew what to expect from meals and boluses. That has changed!!!!! I have lowered my Lantus to 68, then to 66, then to 64. But I have gone back and forth between 64-68. I cannot seem to get it straightened out. It will work for awhile, then I start to have lows, so I adjust. The new number works for awhile but then it doesn't so frustrating! I have done some basal testing as explained in TLAP but my needs seem to keep changing back and forth. Some of it seemed related to the temperature (I do not have air conditioning), but now I don't think so. So here are my questions:
    Question #1 Would splitting my dose in two help me better fine-tune my doses, because maybe I need different amounts day and night?
    Question #2. If I do split, how would I start. Do I just take 1/2 one night?
    Note: I did discuss this briefly with NP at my last appointment, so she knows I might do this.
    Note: I realize that you are not health care professionals and do not hold you accountable in any way but advice, tips, and your experiences are appreciated.

    Essie - many folks do split their lantus dose in two - some even split it in three.
    That said... a fluctuation from needing 64 to 68 units a day is tiny... and unless you have a pattern indicating a smaller need during a particular time-frame during the day, it's unlikely that a split dose will help. For example... if you are experiencing lows during the night, but running normal or slightly high during the day, that would indicate a lower need during the night, and splitting the dose (perhaps 60/40 in favour of the morning dose) might help.
    But in your description, you seem to be indicating a variable need - not a regular daily shift from day to night, or some other cycle within the 24 hour period. Is it possible that your shift in need is related to your hormonal cycle? That is fairly common - most women experience SLIGHTLY different basal need during their cycle, generally experiencing a greater need during the luteal phase of the cycle. Here's a page summarizing a small study of this phenomenon:
    https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC3631835/
    And here's a more general article on the subject: http://www.diabetes.co.uk/periods-and-diabetes.html
    Good luck getting it figgered out!

    t1wayne‍ Thank you Wayne. I had a hysterectomy when I was 30 (I am now 53), so I really don't know how to figure that out, but it does not seem hormonal to me. And why did 70 work every day for six months and not now? I neglected to mention that I do seem to be high late afternoon, and in the evening, when I used to never go high. But, then I have had lows all over the place too. I really feel like my I:C is now all out of whack but know they say you have to fix basal first. I do know I am so glad things worked so well for six months, because I would have been very discouraged if I had this experience at the beginning!
