Thanx I already did try it. I also have it that Lantus should keep your body release as normal in other words between 4 - 6 in morning before eating anything, . Mine stays a little bit higher so I also think the Lantus must be more than the 43 I am injecting now and go little by little more until as high as you 50.

Hi Rabie. I was taught as a Diabetes Educator to adjust ones nightly dose of the BASAL INSULIN , Lantus either way until our FBS is in the correct range. But this should ONLY be done by the person who has prescribed your Lantus in the first place
Would you be willing to share with us what you eat over a 24 hour period? Mayb too many carbs especially at nights?
The reason I ask is that I have taken both Lantus and Humalog for years. It is now only from January of this year that my sugars have improved since I started restricting my carbs intake. Try to start doing carbs counting and try to restrict your carb intake to about 120 grams carbohydrates per day.
Also take a look at your injection technique. Although costly please try to change the needle each time you wind up your dose. The needles are super fine and can bend easily.
Please keep your unused insulin analogs in the bottom of the fridge, but your insulin in use keep at room temperature. This can be confirmed by the prescribing informatiin in each drug package. Make sure that you never shake the cartridge as in doing this it can cause air bubbles to be produced thereby not getting the right amount per dose.
These are just little things I learnt along the way.
All the very best and keep encouraged as you will get in good control.
Just never ever give up. Never.
