    Other insulins inactivate the lantus. I can't give you a big chemical reason for that, although we did learn the overall why in organic chem years ago.

    Not mixing lantus with things is in the paperwork (long microscopic words)that comes with the vial in the box from the manufacturer. But I have an easier solution for it...
    Just don't mix lantus at all...memorize it and just go with it as second nature. I do...it is as second nature to me as 'date/time/sign'...LOL! I like simple, and not mixing it is simple...
    I have had patients at home mix it...and it doesn't do anything! Their sugars are out of whack..and they are just "well...I can only take one shot"...and I typically reply "and that is why you are hear getting more shots than you imagined huh? Please don't mix it, it becomes inactive and thus...you are here and feeling horrible! I don't want you to feel horrible! You have a condition that is inside your body, and sadly the solution must too go inside your body, and this particular solution is fragile itself, so it has to go more direct than mouth to be damaged by the stomach. Please try to help yourself by not mixing the solution and having to come here...I don't like to see you feeling cruddy!".
