How much insulin do you guys take, a day, on average?

Hey guys-

I’m still honeymooning and making do with MDI of lantus and novolog. I know eventually I will make almost no insulin and will need much more than I take now- and this is certainly true- 0.5U of Novolog used to fix nearly any high I had. Now I pretty much need 1 U of novolog per 30g carbs to be less than 200 2 hours later, and end up taking about 10-15 Units total of lantus and novolog per day.

For those of you who are on a pump, or totally insulin dependent- how much do you take a day? I’m just trying to get an idea of how much I should be expecting to take in general later.


We had a poll and a discussion thread on the topic at the end of October. Go here for tons of responses!
