I have been a t2 for 16 years. Not once in that time did I ever feel I was in control of my medical care. I met withe my CDE and nutritionist this week…AND. finally success! I will start lantus next week not because my numbers are bad, but because all the oral meds over the years have rotten my stomach out…I told them I wasn't going to spend my life in the bathroom…we had to do something different. Here's a hint ****if your Dr. Isn't listening to you find another advocate. My CDE has known me since day one she listened and went to the doc armed with my info and the knowledge of diabetes and talked to the Dr. Doc usually don't get a lot of training in "d'', so they depend on the other experts for info. So now I am seeking support from others who use lantus, give me some of your experiences and knowledge, please.
