    Hi,

    Been on levemir for over 10 years now & recently switched over to Basaglar last week but only having 1 dose of this. I hadn’t even heard of this insulin until now. I believe it’s similar to how Lantus works but I just want to see how others find it using this one & how does it compare to levemir? Do people tend to split this or use 1 dose? Maybe I just need to get my doses right but my levels have slowly risen since switching to it.

    Well ! I went the other way from Abasaglar to Levemir.
    I had to split the dose because for me, Abasaglar never lasted 24hrs. Also I found that my backround glucose levels were not very flat and I much prefer Levemir - less hypo's for me anyway.
