Yesterday my father-in-law and I had a bit of a heated discussion on how one should calculate amount of units for injection. He does calculations the same for Lantus as he does for his Novalog, base plus sliding scale. I do this too, but I have carb count to boot, but I use this method for short term insulin, in my case Humalog. For Lantus, I have a set amount I inject of 55 units in the morning and 55 at bedtime. For seven years the Doc has told me how much to inject, never do I do calculations as on does for short term insulin.
So what do you do if you take Lantus?
