This question is mainly for women with Type 1 who take MDI, but I am open to anyone’s advice.
I have had Type 1 for over 20 years. Lantus one time a day worked well until I had my son 5 years ago.
It seems no matter what I do I get an increase in BG around 2 am- it goes up into the high 200’s. This seems to only happen consistently right after ovulation until I get my period. That’s about 10 days a month. Pretty sure it’s hormonal- one dr recommended going on birth control to stabilize hormone fluctuation, but I’m not sure about that?
I tried Tresiba ( too many lows in the day) and taking a morning and evening dose of Lantus and then switching to Levemir and taking two doses as well. I’ll take any advice. It’s exhausting having to take a correction dose of humalog every night and I’ve also noticed during this time I need more humalog to correct at this time of day (early morning hours).
