I wanted to know if anyone here ever mixes lantus with humalog. I know they tell us not to etc etc.
Here is my situation. When I take off my pump for a short time to shower or whatever, my sugars go up very fast, like 10 min later I see it climbing. After 20 min and I’m over 200.
If my site clogs or stops absorbing, it’s the same deal it’s fast and I fear DKA a little. I know my insulin resistance is high when I go over 200mg/dL and it takes more insulin to combat it.
So I tried to spike my humalog with lantus.
I put 190 units of humalog in with 10 units of lantus.
I figured this could be a disaster and I was prepared to dump the idea.
However after a day and a half, my sugars are flatter and I’m at 100% in range.
I got a pump alarm that I haven’t touched any buttons on my pump for 12 hours, which has not happened before since I’ve had it.
I went into my shower at 113 and I left the shower at 117.
So I’m really happy with this.
I’m waiting for he other shoe to drop,
Has anyone else ever attempted something like this ?
Am I playing with fire?
I have one day of data here. I’m not ready to say my issues are solved by any means.
