    Lantus is a 24 hour steady release effect. Lantus can be given in a single shot and some people may have to split the dose, ie am and pm.

    WHEN I WAS FIRST PUT ON THE LANTUS SHOT MY DOCTOR SAID THAT THE SHOT IS A SLOW RELEASE INSULIN AND WOULD STAY IN THE SYSTEM FOR TWENTY FOUR HOURS , BUT IT TAKES A COUPLE OF DOSES FOR IT TO BUILD UP ENOUGH TO START GETTING MORE ACCURATE READINGS, AND TO STABLIZE THE FLUXUATION OF THE SUGAR IN YOUR SYSTEM..

      I have been changed from 2 shots a day, 12 hours apart, to one big shot in the morning. Now I have bad numbers every morning, especially after breakfast. Any idea what is going on? I thought it was supposed to last 24 hrs.  READ MORE

      With my son we all of a sudden had bad readings after breakfast too. We had to really up his carb ratios for his humalog. We went from a 1:50 ratio to a 1:25 for breakfast with great success. I would suggest talking to your endo. He takes lantus at 9am and never peaks like some people do with it. He needs different carb ratios and different meals due to different sensitivities at different times of the day. READ MORE
