 1  type 2 diabetes started at 12 units x 3 days went to 13units x3 days. Stopped taking on third 13 unit day(Supposed to increase to 14units) Blood sugar persistently went up. Before taking was in 2 to 300 range when I stopped it was over 600. Sr and team still insist that plants can't increase blood sugar because it is insulin. I will not take any more. Went back to Actos. Sill having spikes over 600. I have stage 4 kidney failure and am having great difficulty finding high protein food not full of salt. Any suggestions on a good drug to use?

 2  Type 2 The first two pens I am fine. Then I get anxiety and a real dull feeling like I can't feel joy anymore. Also have a lot of heart pounding and insomnia. Did not do great with my sugars either. Between 149 and 220. When i don't take it I might have 20 points higher. Don't know whether that is worth the side effects. Having a real hard time with all of diabetes meds. F 53 6 months

 2  Diabetes Easily go hypoglyemic if too active, severe joint pain all over body, itching, swollen stomach & weight gain, tingling in hands and crawling sensation on skin, regular nausea and headaches,bouts of severe shakes as if I'm hypoglycemic, but #'s are normal, Severe fatigue, occasional bouts of Vertigo so severe that cannot drive a car and must lean against walls to walk around at home. I've been on it for approx. 4 years and currently injecting 80 units @ bedtime -- Do not know what I am going to about all this, but now realize from this blog that it is all related to the Lantus LA. I have days when the joint pain is so sever I can barely walk or put on or take off my jacket. M 62

 1  For high blood glucose control 80lb weight gain, sore joints, eye surgery required, both eyes, major leg cramps, excessive hunger and several bottom outs (major drop in numbers). Knowing it was the drugs I confronted my physician repeatedly until she finally admitted that the medication did have appetite enhancers in it along with other medication that cause the side effects I was experiencing. Stopped immediately now on Novolog/Novolin 70/30. Lost 35 lbs, feeling & sleeping much better! F 54 3 years

 3  Diabetes Type 2 The Lantus worked well on my glucose level but it burned like fire. I have switched to Toujeo. The toujeo requires a slightly higher dose (30 units) and burns much much less. F 45 3 months

 1  Type II Diabetes The major side effect was that I gained 37 pounds in 11 months, going from a slim 169 to a fat 206, while taking it. The extra wait rendered Lantus non-effective for me. I gained this weight even as I swam regularly 3 - 5 times a week. As of yesterday, my Dr agreed that the added wait was not good for me and removed me from Lantus and returned me to Metformin twice a day and Victoza at the lowest level, once a day. Good riddance Lantus. M 55 11 months

 2  To lower my bloods Ive gone from being between 72-75kg to nearly 90kg in three months!! Sore joints and pins and needles in feet and hands. Sore heads which i've never suffered with before. All the weight is on my torso. Also i have no idea if this is related but when i get a mosquito bite they are worse than they used to be? My bloods are better now though. M 30 3 months
