Hello all, I have came on here and searched for different topics for years but never registered, just used it as a resource for information.
It has been a while since I had to search online for help but had some hiccups this summer and here I am, searching for answers in the next chapter of this ever changing world.
I have been diabetic for over 11 years now, but in late May I had a very scary thing happen.
I was taking my shower when I coughed reflexively, naturally my instinct was to cover my mouth with my hand. To my surprise, I coughed up a handful of blood. Needless to say, I was no longer going to work. I finished the shower in a hurry, threw on some sweat pants and headed straight to the nearest ER. Incidentally, 6:45 AM is a really good time to go to the ER, nobody is there.
It ended up being a very rare lung cancer that was very slow growing and very treatable, but it has wreaked havoc on my treatment. The tumor was a neuroendocrine carcinoma, so it was also releasing hormones for what was probably the last 14 or so years.
The lower lobe of my right lung was removed on August 4th. About a week later, the Levemir I had been on for a little over a year, suddenly stopped working. I was constantly taking Humalog corrections.
So now I am trying to figure out Toujeo. I used to take Lantus, and had to take 20 units in the morning, and 10 at night because of dawn phenomenon.
If anyone has made the switch from Lantus to Toujeo, and they had to split the Lantus like I did because of dawn phenomenon, did you have to do the same with Toujeo?
Any help is appreciated.
