Can You Give Yourself Lantus And Novolog At The Same Time?

Share on facebook

The common myth is once you have a transplant, of the transplant kidney fails, the patient dies Normally what happens is, when you have a kidney transplant, if the kidney is rejected, the transplant kidney fails and the patient can go on dialysis. Infact if you look at the cases that are coming now in the Western world now, in America, the 4th or the 5th commonest cause of transplant failure is kidney failure. So transplant kidney failing does not mean that you are going to die, because once the transplant kidney fails, you can go for dialysis and you can go for a second transplant and I know cases where they have gone upto 7 transplants. In my own experience, patients have goes upto 4 transplants. So transplant kidney failure does not man death, because they can go back on dialysis, they can go back for retransplantation.

What Would Happen If I Mixed Lantus With Novolog?

What would happen if I mixed Lantus with Novolog? Registration is fast, simple and absolutely free so please, join our community today to contribute and support the site. This topic is now archived and is closed to further replies. What would happen if I mixed Lantus with Novolog? I take both insulins by syringe and I almost used the same syringe for both. My syringes are the orange type and brand name is ReliOn. Is there a way that I can get diffient color for each syringe so I don't get these syringes mixed up and don't have to waste them by useing them only one time. Doctor told me I could use them more then one time. I would suggest you switch to the Lantus Solostar pen and eliminate this problem. I don't, but others that use the Lantus Solostar pen, or other pens, reuse their pen needles. In this way any cross contamination is virtually impossible. The possibility also exists that even though you might try using different color syringes...that system can also be compromised. You retinas cannot see the difference in colors in low light. Oops, forgot to answer your question: If you mix Lantus and Novolog together...your body will swell up twice its size and explode. If you're Continue reading >>

    Using 2 different type of insulin?

    I have just been told today that I have to go on insulin as the Doc is not impressed with the readings based on the oral medication.
    I was put on Humulog 3 times daily and Lantus at night. But I am reading the instructions and here it says. of Lantus …" Must not be mixed or diluted with any other insulin. Mixing or diluting can chnage its time/action profile and mixing can cause precipitation'. What does that mean? Can you be taking 2 different types of insulin at the same time? This is depressing me and I am confused.

    Hi. The instructions mean don't mix the insulins in the same syringes. I also take lantus and I take humulinR. I've not had any trouble. I wish you the best! :)

People with diabetes cannot use food for energy the usual way because they do not have insulin, or insulin does not do its job correctly in their bodies. Insulin is a hormone made in the pancreas, which is an organ located behind the stomach. Insulin lowers blood glucose levels. People with diabetes may inject insulin with a syringe two or more times each day, usually before a meal or at bedtime.

Always consult with a physician or a diabetes nurse educator before starting or changing insulin doses. Did you know that all type 1 diabetics and some type 2 diabetics need injectable insulin in order to live? Put another way, if a diabetic needs insulin in order to live, and the diabetic does not get insulin, the diabetic will die. Diabetic death from Diabetic Ketoacidosis is a grisly process, during which acid starts running through your bloodstream, searing your vessels and organs while your body shrivels up in dehydration as it tries to push the acid out of your body through your urine and lungs, and, left untreated, the condition shuts down your organs one by one until you are dead. If you're lucky, your brain will be the first thing to swell itself into a coma and you'll be unconscious for the remainder of the organ failures. In some cases, this grisly diabetic death can take a few days or weeks to complete its process. Or, if you're one of the luckier less-resistant insulin-dependent type 2 diabetics, you may actual Continue reading >>

Do Different Body Colors And Labels Of Insulin Pens Enhance A Patient’s Ability To Correctly Identify Pens For Injecting Long-acting Versus Short-acting Insulins?

Go to: Background Insulin injections are essential in type 1 diabetes, which is characterized by the absence of endogenous insulin production. The vast majority of patients with type 2 diabetes will also require insulin therapy at some point in their treatment, with increasing use in the early treatment of type 2 diabetes because of the benefits in terms of hemoglobin A1c reductions.1 The traditional method of injecting insulin with a vial and manual syringe has largely been supplanted by newer methods, particularly insulin pen devices, which offer marked improvements in terms of convenience, flexibility, and social acceptability.2–4 Indeed, studies have shown that patients with diabetes who need to inject insulin tend to prefer pen devices to the vial and syringe option.5,6 Health care professionals also prefer insulin pens for their patients, believing that it is easy to teach patients how to use pens.7 Insulin pens also offer advantages over the vial and syringe in terms of improved dose accuracy.8 However, dosing errors, such as injecting a short-acting insulin when a long-acting insulin should have been administered, can result in serious adverse events. Patients with type 1 Continue reading >>

    Took Humalog instead of Lantus!

    You probably think I am so stupid and careless but tonight when I gave myself my once a day basal shot I accidentally/absentmindedly injected Humalog instead of Lantus.
    I take 68 units of Lantus. It changes depending on the meal but I usually take 15-20 units of Humalog at meals. So injecting 68 is so much!
    It has been almost four hours since I did it. I have eaten a ton of stuff out of fear and panic. I am still afraid to go to bed. How long until it is completely out of my system? And since I skipped the Lantus how will that impact tomorrow?

    Lantus will make your BG rise tomorrow when it is not taken. You were good to eat a lot. I have gotten little squezzable packs of frosting for bad reactions, they have about 105 gm of CHO. 2-3 of those prolly would have stopped a major reaction, but they cost $4 apiece.
    With regular, it usually took me 8-12 hours to get over an over injection, I would worry for that long and no more.
    I had to sto ptaking Lantus, I kept reducing my amount down to 19 units, but I got bruises, gained weight, could not lift anymore, and started getting weird colds/lung problems. Humalog did the same to my stomach and gastro, so I went back to Regular and Ultralente, then when they were sued because it had a thgryoid agonist in it, and I have an overactive one anyway, I went to Humulin NPH and regular. I knew how it worked, less problems, did not react so strangely like I did with the newer insulins. Plus, I coudl order it from Canada for 25$ bottle, delivered!
    Every diabetic makes this mistake, and forgetting to take your shots too!

    How scary. That is something I would call my doctor for to get advice. As much as taking insulin (Humalog at meals and Lantus at night) for years, I would still think I forgot or even forget to get an injection. It's one of those things you do so often that you can recall doing it. The problem is that those memories all blend together and you might be recalling yesterday.
    I hope you're okay.

    Many people with diabetes need to take insulin to keep their blood glucose in a good range. This can be scary for some people, especially for the first time.

This is called a subcutaneous (sub-kyu-TAY-nee-us) injection. In some cases, the doctor prescribes a mixed dose of insulin. This means tak ...
