My A1C was over 12.0 so I was placed on this medication in early August. I have done a complete turnaround in my diet and I try to exercise every day and the therapy has worked very well for me.

I switched to insulin from glipizide because my husband and I are trying to conceive. I really like the control I get from Novolog. My doctor paired it with 10 units of Lantus and Metformin. The combo put my A1C at 5.9%. I really like not having to take a ton of pills each day. I am considering just staying on insulin even when we are not trying to have a baby.
