From Philpot, Kentucky, USA:

I have been told that salt and caffeine intake can effect the Lantus my husband is taking. Is this true? If so, how?


Although these may have minor effects, they do not have major effects on the potency or time course of the Lantus. Salt and caffeine should be used in moderation. I would not ascribe major changes in insulin action to the intake of salt and caffeine.
