Ihave been taking Lantus isulin pen injections for over a year,(10 units @ bedtime)with 2 tablets of glyburide each morning & my blood glucose has only been 200 twice & that was because I had eaten too much cake over the holidays.

My average blood sugar levels were between 300-400 daily. Was taking Metformin and Glyburide for more than a year with verry little changr. Started injecting Lantus at 10 units daily, settled at 30 units daily. Combined with Actos and Glipizide, my fasting blood sugar levels went from 300-400 to less than 200 each morning. Now my blood sugar levels are averaging 110 fasting :)

Currently at 70 units, have taken this for over 2 yrs. Little improvement of BS levels even w/ Metformin and Amaryl. Proper lifestyle changes made - what else is there to use?
