I was looking into switching to an insulin pump, when I found the tudiabetes site. After lots of reading, I decided against a pump, but through this site was introduced to Tresiba. I asked for the switch at my Endo visit in August. I had been using 18U Levimer and about 6U Humolog a day, in addition to the max dosage of Metformin (850mg 3x daily). As a side, I am a small person, with no weight issues, and my A1C is very good. Currently I’m using only Tresiba (18U daily) and Metformin. Since changing over, I have only used the short acting insulin once, and it messed me up. I don’t think the intended use for Tresiba is to override the use of short acting insulin, but it’s working for me! I hated the lack of spontaneity, and now only have to have my Metformin with me, if I end up eating away from home.
We were just in Canada, and I looked into purchasing Tresiba there. No one carried it yet! However, the last pharmacist that I spoke with looked it up, and they should have it available in a month or so. Don’t know about the cost. Plan to use the Tresiba coupon here as long as I can, which beats my co-pay.
Anyway, I’ve found tudiabetes to be most helpful, so just wanted to return a little feedback.
