My son was in those pre-teen years when he was on Lantus. He was hungry all the time—but I don't think it had anything to do with the Lantus. If you know what I mean :-) He was growing like a weed.

I was on lantus for about a year. I was hungry all the time. I gained several pounds. I was switched to differant insulin and have slowly started to lose some weight not a lot.

I have been on lantus for over a year now and have not noticed any difference in appetite. I have, however, gained weight(not due to increased appetite). I think I need to get out and exercise which is not easy in this midwestern town (one day snow, the next day rain, etc.)
