As an example, in Ontario the provincial… read more

Is Anyone Using Toujeo Insulin
A DiabetesTeam Member asked a question 💭

I was on Lantus and Apidra for many years. My Dr changed my insulin to Toujeo and Apidra. I am finding Toujeo less effective and have to take more of it. Has this happened to anyone else. Also am struggling with morning blood sugars which are high no matter what I eat the night before.....Insulin has also resulted in weight gain . Please share if you have any solutions to this problem or know anyhing about Toujeo. Thanks

I switched from Lantus to Toujeo at the start of this year. It's just double strength and long-lasting Lantus so, in my case, I was able to reduce my injections from two to one a day. My one morning… read more

What Kind Of Medication Is Everyone Taking ?
A DiabetesTeam Member asked a question 💭

I've been on so many diabetic medications . Nothing is truly working for me
Metformin - did nothing for A1C
Jauamet - gave me low blood sugar too low
Victoza - I loved it but ended in emergency for the pain I was experiencing.
Now I'm on Jardiance I'm not liking it

My Readings In The Morning Are Very High
A DiabetesTeam Member asked a question 💭

I am struggling with morning highs and seem to be needing to take much more insulin which I really dont want to do. I go to sleep at night with a certain reading, take insulin Apidra and Lantus and wake up in the morning with the high reading. I have also noticed that the reading does sometimes drop during the course of the night but is high again when I wake up. Also have put on weight. I dont know whether this is a result of wrong eating or whether medication can also stop being as… read more
