Is Lantus Better Than Toujeo For A Type 1 Diabetic?

Is Lantus Better Than Toujeo For A Type 1 Diabetic?

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

I have moved from Lantus to Toujeo. Only one full daily dose needed, so injections halved. Whee!

Clarification On Meal Time Insulin

Clarification On Meal Time Insulin

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.

Thank you. I love this site.

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

Is Anyone Using Toujeo Insulin

Is Anyone Using Toujeo Insulin

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

Who Takes Toujeo?

Who Takes Toujeo?

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.

I’m not certain about where you live but in my area if one drug helps better your doctor can request in writing the insurance company and request the better med for you. Worth a try.

Meal Time Insulin

Meal Time Insulin

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
