    I'm new to Tuojeo...I've moved to it from Lantus.
    I was told Tuojeo will mean I won't have hypos during the work day(physical work).
    Do you find it lasts 3 days? My consultant told me it does. I'm not convinced.
    Would you mind giving me an idea of your doses (pm is grand)? I take 12 units (I had been on 16 Lantus per day).
    Observation; it's possible Tuojeo works nicely while I am working or walking hard and the moment I stop moving, it stops working??? Anyone else finding this?
    I'm tired. I'd love to find an insulin that works ok where I don't have to keep exercising all the time.
    I'll try 13 units tomorrow morning...
    Do you people increase Tuojeo by 1 or 2 units?

    ...I've upped my novorapid to food ratio, now at 2novo:1carb. I had been 1:1 or 1.5:1.

    Don't bother with Tuojeo if you're a type 1 diabetic. Giving up after a few months trial. Disasters, especially some severely low, 'silent' hypos that scared the life out of me. There's no flexibility with Tuojeo if one day you're very active and the next day you're less active. I've needed to halve my fast acting novorapid instead.
