I am now using Tresiba, and it works amazingly well. Every now and then, I like to do zero-carb days (except for carbs in fiber, which don’t raise the blood sugar). On those days, the BG graph is almost entirely flat. Really cool.
However, what surprised me is that the basal dosage increased compared to Lantus. I used 10 units of Lantus 1x daily, but now use 14 units of Tresiba. I thought that typically people need less basal after switching to Tresiba? Also, I’m still honeymooning (C-peptide levels are still there a bit), so isn’t 14 units a little high for a honeymooning T1?
I’m not worried, just a little surprised and curious. Maybe I actually did need more Lantus as well, but didn’t notice it, because the small Lantus peak coincided with the increased basal need in the morning. Or maybe it is a product of a slowly fading honeymoon.
