I've been Type 1 for 52 years and this is by far the best insulin I've ever used. I've been on it for about three weeks with no lows - just excellent BG readings. My insulin needs have also dropped by about a third. And instead of split doses, my basal with Tresiba is now once a day in the AM. My doctor and I are both delighted with the results I have been having. I'm using the U-100, and the ...

When I first started this drug my glucose was in the high 300's the Dr. prescribe 30 units. after 2 months my dosage had to be decreased to 25 units because my glucose reading were too low. now my glucose reading are in the 100's. when I first started this medicine I did have some side effects (dizziness upon standing was horrible and my nose felt tight)it was vey scary but I stuck with it now those side effects has subsided. I don't work anymore so it was easy for me to just stay at home and lay down in the bed. If I couldn't tolerate it I would have ask the dr. for something else I have been on this medication for four months. No one showed me how to use this medicine and some times it didn't go in and it rand ran down my stomach after re-reading the instructions I learned how to use the pen correctly Now I have to remember to eat a evening snack sometimes my glucose will drop low around 5 or 6 am and I have to get something right away. so I drink a cup of milk while I am fixing my breakfast.

I've been Type 1 for 52 years and this is by far the best insulin I've ever used. I've been on it for about three weeks with no lows - just excellent BG readings. My insulin needs have also dropped by about a third. And instead of split doses, my basal with Tresiba is now once a day in the AM. My doctor and I are both delighted with the results I have been having. I'm using the U-100, and the newly designed pens are far above any others I've handled. My biggest concern in the beginning was how would it be to work with a 42 hour insulin. I would suggest reading Novo's full information on Tresiba before converting, because it does address this issue. But switching over for me was actually very easy. One important note in their info was that it takes 8 days for Tresiba to reach it's full potential, so any increases have to be made slowly. I've only had to increase my initial dose by two units, one time, and at this point I believe I'm right on target. My morning blood sugars are the kind I used to only dream about! :-) I hope more people are given the opportunity to try Tresiba. As far as the rumors of sky high cost is concerned, the Humalog pens I buy are actually more expensive than the Tresiba! So, don't believe every rumor you read. Talk to Novo, and talk to folks that are using Tresiba if you want to know how what it's really all about. My father had Type 1 diabetes most of his life, and his parents told him that in his life time there would probably a cure. I've had Type 1 most of my life, and my parents told me that in my life time there would probably be a cure. Well, I don't see 'the cure' happening any time soon, but until then for me Tresiba is about as close to 'a cure' as you can get. IMHO of course.
