At first, I was hesitant to inject daily but after seeing my bood glucose numbers drop over the course of only 2 weeks, I was convinced.

The manufacture has a quality control issue with this drug and it is very sensitive to temperature. Always keep a backup with this drug as it may stop working at anytime due to bad product.

After I had been a diabetic for about 15 years I was having difficulty in keeping my sugar levels down and i was placed ona regime of fast acting porcine insulin and Lantus was proscribed as a "back up" As I have some Kidney dysfunctrion I had been prescribed Furosemide.about 11 years ago. It now appears these drugs are nottotally compatible and I am suffering from the interactions and I am now seeking alternative medications to help controlmy problems. Can you suggest alternatives? The Diabetic consultant has today suggested Hypurine Slow acting or Insultard, but the Renal consultant insists there is no alternative to Furosemide!Read More Read Less

My blood pressure went up to 151/68 and my pulse was 81. I normally have low BP ranging 92/60 and 84/54. I had bad cramps on left side of stomach area w/Lantus and stiffness in my calves. Irregular heartbeat; very fast. It brought my blood sugar down to the mid to upper 100s. I had two low readings, one 46 and one 60. My diabetes has been out of control for 29 years and still is. I've tried every insulin available. I watch my diet carefully too and I get exercise.
