    Levemir injection of 120cc once each evening with glucose reduction only to 185 in the mornings, raising to 260 in the afternoon. Ineffective as a blood sugar control.

    Diabetic for 25 years, on insulin for 18. Lantas was controlling sugars well. Forced to switch to Levemir by provider. It is not working for me and I feel terrible. Even with careful ketogenic lifestyle A1C up from 6.3 to 8's and going higher. PLEASE LET ME KNOW IF YOU WANT TO JOIN A CLASS ACTION SUIT AGAINST INSURERS TO GET BACK TO LANTAS.

    I use Levemir in conjunction with fast-acting insulin Novolin. The combination keeps my A1c around 7.0 when I eat decently. The pen set is easy to use. There low cost pen needles for sale online.

    I have been using Levimir for over a week now and my blood sugars are higher than ever. It doesn't seem to be working.

    Comment:
    After having tried multiple oral and injectables for my diabetes, the doctor decided to try the Levemir Flextouch. It began working within a couple of days. Prior to initiation of this medicine I had multiple side effects and my A1C continued to be high. Now...virtually no side effects, my sugar is under control and my A1C is below 6. something that has not happened in years. Great medication ... Show Full Comment
