I was changed to toujeo about 3weeks ago. I take it at night but throughout the night my sugar starts going up. Should it be changed back to lantus? I'm a type 1 and have a dexcom which has been great so far. What is a good recommendation ?
I'm on trujeo and take 114 units every morning. I don't take any other form of insulin. It did drop my a1c from 7.2 to 6.4 in 3 months. I also can't eat a diabetic diet due to gastroparisis and… read more
Well, my Dr. increased Toujeo insulin to 80 units. I take this 2 hrs after meal. Is there a grace period after eating?
I'm finding it difficult to test blood sugar when out for dinner. If I eat at 6pm, I might not get home within 2 hours.
Please explain meal time doeses. Not there yet but I'm proactive.
RE TOUJEO: not sure what you mean by a grace period. It's usually advised to test at the 1 and 2 hour mark from your first bite of food to see how it affects you. Also if you don't test pre-meal 15-20… read more
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 .

I've taken Lantus solostar for a long time and to keep it short I had Toujeo refilled instead, I've taken it before, but I am on 26u of lantus and toujeo says it's 3 times more powerful but I don't remember being it that way, this morning I shot 26 like lantus, we'll see what it says in the morning.
Meal time insulin is coming for sure. I see my Dr. in September and my am and pm bs are very high. The increase of Toujeo to 80 units is not bringing it down. I really don't like all this testing I will be doing. I have never had to worry about low bs. How do these pumps work? Will they help me have less needle sticks? Do they administer insulin? I need to be educated and know you, my friends, will help. I feel good. Each day is different. Life is an adventure
God bless all of you. Thank you… read more
