Type 2 diabetes and long acting insulin

As a longtime diabetic I think of it this way. Lantus and other long acting insulins are a 24 hour base. Sometimes they are called basal. Shorter acting insulins are for dealing with what you eat & drink during the day and to correct high blood sugars that are out of range. They are sometimes called bolus.
