Well my endocrinologist enrolled me in the trial program for this new insulin that's just been approved by health Canada.
I don't start taking it until Friday night so I'll have the weekend to deal with any side effects before needing to be at work.
Semi nervous about the new insulin as its a condensed version of Lantus (yes I know it's not interchangeable but for all intent of purpose it's condensed Lantus).
Reading the drugs profile n side effects increased hypos until correct dosage is found is something I'm not looking forward to since I've already got hypo unawareness as is to as low as 1.8 (23).
Was put on it because I'm between 80 n 100 units of Lantus dependingon my daytime numbers. But my evening numbers start to clime after dinner into the hyper range n he doesn't understand why they are doing this. I think it is because the Lantus has warn off n isn't there in the background to keep things in check.despite the insulin being long acting at 24 hours I don't think it's lasting that length of time in my system.
Oh well time will tell how it goes I'm on the 4 month trial of it, so we'll know the results when he pulls my blood next visit if it's helpful or not.
