Did they ask you to check in by phone either daily or weekly? My Dr. had me checking in weekly and they adjusted my insulin bases on the previous weeks readings.

You should phone your doctor's office (or whoever your primary care is) and make sure you have your log so you can tell him/her what your reading are. They may help you either adjust your dose or suggest a different insulin. They may be able to find one that is covered.

Good luck.

Novolog flex pen is my fast acting insulin. Basaglar kwik pen is my new long acting. I liked lantus for my long acting a lot but this basaglar is not controlling my sugars.

I use lantus along with Novo Rapid and Novo NPH. I have never used Basaglar, sorry....

But I am curious.... what do you mean by novolog? Is that some new kind of device and how does it work?

My medicaid no longer covers lantus, which i did good on lantus with novolog. I was switched to basaglar, which is SUPPOSE to be almost the same and dosing and all. Well my sugars are mainly over 200 since i started it friday night, upping it again tonight, and my novolog cant keep up, my lowest reading ive had was 168 and it didnt last. Anyone else have experience with this insulin? Also it hurts going in my novolog and the old one lantus never have
