Hi guys, I haven’t been on this forum for a while. Mainly I am swamped at work and well …hidden away for a bit. I have done some research into long acting lantus and it seems it is not reliable 100% ie only 55% reliable. I think this would explain my consistent unexplained peaks and troughs. I just wondered if anyone else experienced a certain unexplained drop in sugar levels or rise with Lantus insulin.
I am looking to go on the pump which would not only fine tune my insulin regime but also should Lantus prove to not be 100% reliable then the pump would help with this also. One example was my sugars suddenly dropping from 5.6mmol to 1.4mmol within a minute after taking both Lantus and Novorapid. I had to have two people look after me and I have no explanation for this whatsoever as had gotten my lunch straight away and although never ate breakfast this doesn’t normally occur.
I welcome any advice / opinions etc. including possible reasons for my sudden drop in sugar levels.
