Been on Levemer for over 3 weeks. Started at 10 units, now up to 48. Numbers are awful >240-300. Very discouraging with numbers much higher than oral pills of Metformin, Glipizide, Januvia. Eyesight has deteriated greatly. Hopefully at 55+ units it will show signs of working.

Have only taken 2x at night, 10ml. No more glyburide but down to two 500 metformin morning and dinner. So far NOTHING!! Both mornings readings of 215(was that way on all the oral meds!), and in afternoon after exercise -- I walk for a living (dog walker) blood sugar at 300! Is it normal for this to be so slow? I am watching what I eat!
