Newly diagnosed type 1 diabetic. Lantus (insulin glargine) nighttime insulin only. Sugar pre dinner 184. Post 311. Do I need to go to ER?
I take background insulin (humulin i) and quick acting ( Novorapid (insulin aspart)). In Phase 1 I would not need to use the Novorapid (insulin aspart) but what about the Humulin i?
Insulin: I assume Humulin N, and novorapid (insulin aspart). Diabetes in its natural course of the disease tends to progress and likely to use more medicine is not unusual. Initially controlled with the intermediate acting Humulin N is no longer enough and body needs more help with meals, so rapid acting novorapid (insulin aspart) is added. It is standard to use long or intermediate acting insulin along with rapid acting insulin. ...Read more

New T1 Diabetic. Prescribed lantus (insulin glargine) only since I still produce some insulin on my own. Post dinner BG is 311 w/no ketones. Need ER or ok?
Glucagon: Hi. Everyone who lives on insulin should have a glucagon emergency kit on hand. The diabetic can't use it herself/himself...it's meant for when the diabetic is too low to safely give sugar by mouth. Glucagon kit is prescription only, so you'll need to talk with your doc and get an Rx. Please have it on hand...it's critically important for diabetics with hypoglycemia unawareness. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
I have injected levemir (insulin detemir) insulin instead of novolog insulin by accident what do I do now?
Eye on sugar: Hi. Sooner or later, it happens to most insulin users. It would have been more dangerous had you injected Novolog instead of Levemir (insulin detemir), (insulin detemir) because Novolog hits with a bang, and hypoglycemia risk would be much higher for 6-7 hours. As it is, your risk is much lower for hypoglycemia having taken Levemir (insulin detemir) by accident. It won't cover your meal well at all. Follow your sugars more for next 16-20 hours. ...Read more

Type II diabetic, blood insulin last test (NOT glucose)=29.5 On lantus (insulin glargine) 62 units, humalog 17 units. Am I still producing endogenous insulin?
Type 1 diabetic actively exercising & healthy eating looking for right lantus (insulin glargine) dose.
Lantus (insulin glargine) dose: Hi. I applaud you for your healthy lifestyle and dedication to tight diabetes control. Finding the right Lantus (insulin glargine) dose can be trickier than people think, especially for an active type 1. I was on Lantus (insulin glargine) for about 6 years before going on CGM in 2006. CGM is THE perfect way to find the right Lantus (insulin glargine) dose, but not everyone uses CGM yet. Do you? My guess is no, or you'd have dialed in the right Lant dose ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Quite possibly: 15 (270 mg/dl) is quite high and she needs something changed, whethe it be higher doses of her diabetes pills, adding more pills, calibrating her blood sugar meter, adding insulin, she needs the sugars to improve.

No: In my 35 years of practice, I have never seen a case of reactive hypoglycemia. The disorder doesn't exist, if you're overweight the symptoms are a natural response to your glucose level returning to normal. A glucose tolerance test (if you've had one) is not and never will be a valid diagnostic test for hypoglycemia. Don't waste your money o GTT or any fad diets of treatments.
