I’m really not sure why Tresiba is doing this to me but here’s what I’m dealing with:
I increase it by a unit (I’m at 18u now), and for the first 7-8 days I do great! My average is always between 120-140, and overnight I’m so stable and averaging at around 100; going to bed at 100, waking up around 100.
Until suddenly, it stops working. I battle my evening highs again, spikes after every meal, doubling on Novolog for every single thing I eat. What gives?
Is this just my body needing more basal insulin? It’s crazy to me because I was only on 15u of Lantus before switching. I keep thinking I have this Tresiba thing figured out, but once that first week is over with a new dose, I’m running into problems again.
I am definitely opposite of what so many have found on Tresiba with cutting their doses in half. One thing is for sure; I’m not having many lows at all. Maybe one once a week which is great! But I can’t get around this wall I hit after one week on an increased dose.
Should I just keep increasing it? My daily average after that one week mark is anywhere between 150-190 and I battle trying to get back to normal and wake up around normal in the morning; it’s like I stay higher.
Any thoughts? I have definitely noticed that it has nothing to do with food. I’ve been sure to eat the same things with this new 18u increase, and was doing so perfectly fine up until now after a week. I’m back to having highs even with just eating salad. It’s making no sense to me.
