Periods and Basal

#1

Hey guys,

I’m pretty newly diagnosed and was wondering if being on your period (menstruation) affects the amount of lantus I would need. Sometimes my periods don’t seem to affect me but recently my sugars have been super high no matter how hard I try to bring them down with corrections.

i just posted about pre period week and insulin dosage. it is variable for me, sometimes my needs dont change, others they do. i can never be sure what things will be like month to month. very frustrating! this month was horrendous and i have promised myself to be more aggressive/just admit to myself that i need more insulin for the week before my period. ( i dont like needing more, even after having this for 5 years.)
for the first three or four years i had no variability at all, it was great.
