    Ive just started on tresiba, day 6. Really struggling to get my blood sugar stabilised. Prior i was using NPH before bed and just Humulin S before meals so i wanted to try having a basal dose during the day. I take T in the morning but my bloods are raising every night about 4 mmol. I upped my dose to 8 units T yesterday and was low all day then again the increase at night. I called the diabetes specialist yesterday morning to ask whether i should take the Tresiba at night rather than morning and he said no, just increase your dose by 1 unit. This morning my blood glucose has been raising. I experience the dawn phenomen. The first day on Tresiba, my bloods were relatively low then the next 2 days they were all over the place but mostly high, I slowly increased my regular insulin which helped but still rising at night. I'm still wondering whether i would be better taking it at night.

    How long did it take for your blood glucose t stabilise?
