Tresiba Update. After having read about many positive reports on Tresiba, I decided to give it a try. If I can simply my life and reduce my Levemir injections from twice daily to once daily Tresiba, and maintain decent BG control, I’d say that’s an improvement.
Day #2 on Tresiba once daily at 6 units.
Last night went to bed at midnight at 139.
This morning fasting BG 88.
The morning fasting is lower than I’ve ever had with my Levemir dosage (usual morning fastings between 100-135). My Levemir dosage was 5 in the morning and 6 at night.
I’m not going to make any changes because of the 3-4 days steady state Tresiba guidelines.
It may seem like my basal is set too high because of the drop from 139 to 88. However, my personal experience has been that whether my bedtime is near 140 or near 200, my next day fasting BG had been between ~ 100-135. Is my liver compensating the sugar dump? If the liver senses bedtime BG near 200, it dumps out less sugar? My endo speculated that perhaps my body liked been between 100-135 for fasting. I was hoping to get between 90-100 for fasting. It looks like 6 units of Tresiba achieved it. To be on the safe side, I will target bedtime around 140 and see what happens… Even if it’s higher, I won’t bolus correct because it would introduce additional variables… It has been said diabetes management is a marathon.
I’ll keep you all posted.
