Treseba Side Effects

Treseba Side Effects

Hi, wondering if anyone is on Treseba (the long acting insulin) and if so did you have any "undocumented" side effects?

I have been on Treseba now for almost 6 months along with taking Rapid insulin at meals.

I am noticing that I have had to increase my before bedtime Treseba dose to more than what I was taking on 50/50 and it doesn't seem to be managing my AIC levels as well as my 50/50 insulin did.

I also have had feeling of shortness of breath at times so my Ventalin usuage has also… read more

Short Acting Insulin Vs. Rapid Insulin

Short Acting Insulin Vs. Rapid Insulin

I am a type 1 diabetic and years after being introduced to Lantus insulin recently made a switch to Treshiba which is a much more stable insulin. I still take Humalin R which is a short acting insulin and it's been recommended to me by my health care team not my family doctor though to switch to a rapid insulin to be taken at meal times

61 Yrs Old. I Have Had Type 2 For Over 5 Years Now, No Obvious Symptoms.

I have a question for other members. I see my doctor regularly and he has adjusted meds in the past. I am currently taking 1000 mg Metformin twice daily, 5 mg Glyberide twice daily, and Tresiba 150 units once per day. Sugars seem controlled OK - AIC is usually just over 7.0.
Is this comparable to you guys ? (I never get to compare with others....)

Pain From Insulin?

Pain From Insulin?

Within the last 3 years I have been getting a spreading burning sensation off and on. I will inject into either the left or right side and a painful burn will spread from the site and go across my belly to the other side. It's not from going too fast.. Anyone else run into this?

A DiabetesTeam Member said:

Thank you for the suggestion. I will look into it.
