HI there, Just wondering if anyone has used Lantus injection for their basal and then bolused with the pump before meals?
I have had T1 diabetes for 20+ years and did not start on the insulin pump until abut 6 years ago, at times taking a “pump vacation” and going back to injections completely. My biggest issue with the pump is my post workout lows ( I work out vigorously and will have lows 5-6, sometimes 8 hours later, no matter how I adjust my basal rate). I don’t seem to have this issue when I use Lantus. It also gets tricky with the pump and finding the right basal rate when I don’t work out one day versus when I do.
Just wondering if others have kept the infusion set connected and then just plugged it in before a meal to get a very accurate bolus rate? I am also very insulin sensitive, not sure if this has anything to do with the issue or not.
