Re: [IPk] Lantus

hm i don't think it will.

on the pump i keep my bg between 4.5 and 5.5 pretty much all day during the week.

at weekends when i'm not doing a set routine or when I misjudge/underestimate the insulin i need, it creeps higher.

I don't see how anyone could argue that a new long acting insulin can beat the pump.
It's down individual personal preference, my control on the pump is fantastic, on MDI i was quite ill.
For people who don't have the choice of using a pump, or who prefer MDI. It is a good thing.

As far as I can see, the balance of opinion in the majority of people is towards MDI anyway, very few people know how the pump can transform lifes. I'm the only diabetic who my GPs, DNS and specialist doctor know is on the pump.
Before I got mine , they were against it.
