    Hi, I am type 1 since 5 years, I take Apidra 6-7-5 units bf and lantus 8 units bef sleep. Since last 1 week after breakfast my sugar level goes very high upto 425 and it starts reducing after 1 pm only and rest of the day is normal. Even at 4 am sugar is around 250. From morning till 1 pm insulin is not absorbed in cells at all, sugar level dont go down at all till 1pm.
    Please advice

    Hi @Saad C ,

    welcome to the forum.

    How long have you been using the current Lantus cartridge?

    Are you saying you started using Lantus a week ago after switching from Tresiba?

    Can I suggest you speak to your diabetic team. As a previous Lantus user mine only lasted 20-22 hours. You may need to split the dose but it is strange that it goes high a few hours after taking lantus.

    Hi. Some of us split our Basal to give better control day/night. I do that with my Levemir. You don't appear to be carb-counting your Bolus doses? These should be set at each meal for the carbs in that meal and not fixed to preset values. Do you have any lipohypertrophy i.e. lumpy flesh at injection points? I found that as a problem recently and now inject at different points.
