Hi Deus, I'm in the same boat and have registered here just so that I can, hopefully, talk to you. I've been on Lantus (16 to 20u at 8pm) and Apidra (1u per 5-6 grams of carbs) for about a year and my latest A1C is 5.5. All great except for the last few months I've been extremely tired, lacking any motivation or drive. It looked like T deficiency but the numbers are fine. What's the latest on Lantus?

    Tiredness and lack of motivation could also be symptoms of depression. If you're concerned about Lantus, you could look at one of the alternative basals. Levemir is broadly similar to Lantus although it doesn't work for everyone, or there's the older synthetic basals (Insulatard, Humalin I) although these aren't as flat-acting as Lantus. There's also the very old animal-derived Lente insulins...and of course, there's the pump.

    Yes, there's other basal insulins available - Levemir is broadly similar to Lantus although it doesn't work for everyone, or there's the older synthetic basals (Insulatard, Humalin I) although these aren't as flat-acting as Lantus. There's also the very old animal-derived Lente insulins...and of course, there's the pump.
