Comment:
My blood sugars have been rising in the past 3 months using Levemir. I've been told that some "batches" are not as good as the rest. I switched to a new pen and my sugars went down dramatically. Has anyone else experienced this and what to do with Levemir that's no good?

I like the other man; 160+ in fasting. Then 220+ other times. Not too much changes. On own and with Nategeline tablets 200+. Will put in more posts at later date of progress with levemire 5 unit.
