    If a person keeps a fast - doesn’t eat till 4ish , for religious reasons then what will the sugars be like during the day?one mistake was made. The lantus at night wasn’t reduced

    if the basal is correct, in this case the Lantus, then you would be holding steady within +/- 2mmol......

    if you have to reduce it in the absence of food, then its already too high....

    Lantus inst too flexible though especially if you need different amounts of it from day to night...

    Nothing to worry about there. Did it continue higher later?

    I rarely eat until I’ve been up and about for 8+ hours - if your basal is set right, it shouldn’t be a problem.
