First of all, I was diagnosed in September with type 1, shortly before my 30th birthday. I don’t have a diabetes care team. I just go to a health clinic where my doc only has limited knowledge of diabetes. So basically I am continuously experimenting on myself to see what works for me. I brought my A1C down from 14 at diagnosis to 6 last month so I seem to be doing alright. Ok…now to the point:
I am taking 20 units of Lantus at 10pm every night. My problem is that when I go to bed I have to make sure my BS is at least around 120 or I will go low during the night. Would it be better to take my dose in the morning? It seems to be lasting through all 24 hours so I don’t think I need to split my dose but I would like to avoid having to snack before bed if I am below 120-ish. Any advice? Thanks!
