From Utah, USA:

I want to get a pump really badly! I am now on Lantus, but I forgot to take it one night, and the next day my blood sugars were really high. My pump is coming in the mail tomorrow, and I was just wondering: If I have a bad A1c level, will my doctor still consider putting me on the pump soon?


Different physicians will have different criteria regarding suitability for insulin pump therapy. That said, one missed injection of Lantus (insulin glargine) should not cause of dramatic change in your hemoglobin A1c since it reflects the average of all blood sugars over the last 90-120 days.
