Lantus: You are not giving yourself enough insulin. If you are not taking water or or food I strongly recommend that you either get to see your primary doctor today, or, if not available, please go to the nearest Emergency facility.

Watch your BG carefully during this deviation in your regimen. Good luck! ...Read more
