Type 2 diabetes and long acting insulin

Posted by helpmysister @helpmysister, Oct 28, 2023

My sister has type 2 diabetes and Gastroparesis. She recently had a heart attack. They just put her on a low dose to start of Lantus. She just took her 1st dose yesterday but her blood sugar numbers are still high. How long does it take for this to change?

Thank you so much……very helpful.

Thank you for your input @grrranny. Every little bit is helping others for sure. In my original post I spoke about suppertime and how that helps me. I try to have something for lunch that will not raise sugar levels, then at suppertime something different that will also lessen the sugar. NOW doing that I have many times that I need NO insulin. If I am at 140 at bedtime I take no insulin, and usually at the next morning I will still be at 140 or below, sometimes down to 100. I just had blood drawn last week so I will see what my A1c is at my next visit to the primary. I hope it down.
