My basal needs have been fluctuating somewhat over the last few weeks for multiple reasons. As a result, I kept having problems with Tresiba, because dosage changes with it take a long time to fully take effect.
I was now told that perhaps a switch to Toujeo would help. It lasts >= 24 hours, but not as long as Tresiba, so dosage adjustments should happen faster. However, Toujeo is essentially just a more concentrated insulin glargine, and I have read mixed reports about it.
My other option is a pump, which I currently favor. But aside from that, I want to know about Toujeo as an option.
So, what do you guys think? Would you recommend Toujeo over Tresiba to people who irregularly work out, have varying levels of stress etc. and varying basal needs as a result?
