Any type 1 diabetics out there have experience with switching from Lantus to Basalgar for their long-acting insulin? Did they work pretty much the same for you or were there significant differences in duration time and dosing strength? #t1d
@DiabeticBarista That's definitely worrisome! My insurance also kicked Lantus off the list, and is now favoring Basaglar which is the cheaper biosimilar to Lantus. If lowering/splitting/timing the Tresiba dosage differently doesn't work for them, then hopefully Basaglar is the next best option.
@t1_developer Not talking about a bolus, but having a big crash immediately after doing a basal shot of long-acting. Like doing a shot of LANTUS, Levemir, or Tresiba in my example, & it almost immediately acting like fast acting insulin? I thought I had read another T1 talking about it.

Increasing Tresiba 1u at a time 💁 When I was on Lantus I was taking 15u a day. From everything I saw I figured I would have to cut my Tresiba dose in half. WRONG. lol I do okay on a dose of Tresiba until suddenly, it stops doing its job. I'll battle post mealtime highs no matter how I eat, and also higher fasting numbers (any time of day). Maybe I already said all of this on this platform 😂 it's so hard to keep up when you're a part of t1d forums and such! Anyway; being a t1d for 6 yrs now, maybe I've just hit the point of needing more basal in my life 🙃 I'm not sure. Anyone else have a certain time after diagnosis that they had to significantly increase their basal? How much basal are you on? I know my body is no one else's, I'm just curious! 😁 I don't feel like I'm insulin resistant though; this porblem only crept up when I started Tresiba 3 months ago.
