Is Anyone Taking The Insulin Pin Tresiba FlexTouch?

Is Anyone Taking The Insulin Pin Tresiba FlexTouch?

My doctor put me on insulin a month ago and I am now taking Tresiba. I just want to know how has it affected anyone. I take 20 units a day along with two glyburide pills (5 mg a piece).

twice a day - and had now problems - also just stick to my diet and would love to come off it.
I read an article from a Dr Tony Taylor who said that if the pancreas is not working well due to over weight that is the course of Diabetes

Generally when one is prescribed an insulin, it is not often taken with glyburide, which is also a blood glucose lowering agent. Due to the action of the insulin and the action of the glyburide unwanted lows can occur, making it very difficult to adjust the dosage. Sometimes though insulin is given with metformin, as that drug affects the liver, and does not directly impact on the blood sugar in the same way as glyburide. Check all of this on a reputable web site, and talk to your doctor about it, if you are having any strange side effects, like dizziness, shakiness, or any other unusual effect. Your doctor is your guide in the dosage and use of all medications. Do not take the word of anyone on line, or what you read. You may question things with your doctor, but always listen as he is in charge of the dispensing of medicines.
