My endo recently told me it’s time to start taking Lantus to help control my fasting BGs. I had previously been able to keep it at bay with intense athletic training two times a day, 12 hours apart (5am workout and 5pm workout). That was all well and good until it wasn’t.
I’d like to continue my workout routine and my long distance running (10 miles) because it’s always been my lifestyle, from the time I was a competitive athlete and now into my retirement.
Any tips on how to prevent exercise induced lows later in the day/night when taking Lantus? Also, when is the best time to take Lantus, before or after workout? If I wake up with BG 150-180 range, I can safely exercise without taking insulin?
