Basaglar Vs Lantus

Basaglar Vs Lantus

Things in general have been good. Got my A1c from 13.5 to 5.8 in 6 months.

Got a question though. I was on Lantus at first. Then I switched insurance and the new insurance would not cover Lantus. They only pay for Basaglar, It seems that Basglar does not work as well as the Lantus did in me. It takes quite a bit more units for it to have the same effect.

Is this normal. Has anyone else noticed anything like this?

I was on Ozempic once a week for a few months, it worked fantastic with levelling out my sugars, however made me very sick.

As I mentioned I was like this for roughly 6 months until we discontinued it's use.
