    Posted before about numerous problems with effect of Levemir, although things complicted by Britle diabetes from having Gastroparesis caused by long term autonomic nerve damage. Seems to act more like a fast to medium acting insulin than background and can drop my blood sugar levels severely within 7 hours.

    Been taking 10 units am and 8 units last thing, and have tried all combinations of times , unit doses of Levemir based on twice daily with no success.

    Now considering splitting into 3 doses. Has anyone else tried this with good effect. Anything to watch out for. Been diabetic for decades but not as up todate as most people on this forum with latest news and changes etc. And have given up on on Diabetic Clinic , overworked and they don't have the time or resources to deal with much more than annual screening and the basics.
