I have type 2 diabetes and use 70/30 insulin. In the middle of night, I eat food because my blood sugar drops. My A1c and blood pressure are good, but energy is still elusive. Would I function better with Lantus?

I have had type 1 diabetes for 22 years, and recently switched from twice-daily NPH/Regular insulin to an evening Lantus injection with Humalog boluses based on carbohydrate intake. Three times now I have forgotten to take my evening Lantus injection. I know I forgot it as soon as I wake up the next morning, but I can’t find any information on what to do next. The Lantus prescribing information does not address this situation.

I take Lantus twice per day with Humalog before meals, and I have been having high blood sugars in the mornings when I wake up. I tried to increase the Lantus, but my blood sugars were still high when I woke up. Is it possible my blood sugar is dropping too low and my system is rebounding my sugars high in the morning?

I’m a Pharmacist and was doing a continuing education program on new insulin delivery and technology. My husband is on a pump. The CE booklet had a section by Dr. Bruce Bode. In his last paragraph he said, “the best insulin for the pumps is insulin aspart” based on results of a study of his (Diabetes Care 2002; 25:439-444) in which symptomatic or confirmed hypoglycemia was reduced by 30% over insulin lispro and human insulin.”
