Re: [IPk] How will I benefit with Lantus?

Hi Barbara,

I agree with Michael's reply. There are a couple of provisos: the DSN I see
said that experience is showing that lantus often does not last for 24
hours, but as little as 22 (and, in some cases, 20 hours). The other
difficulty many people are reporting is that an adjustment can take up to 3
days to work out in your system - so you don't know if betteg BGs are
because lantus or not.
