and weights well over 230 pounds only takes 34 units of lantus
at night and up to 16 units of humalog
if he eats pizza. I have told him that the lantus
dose is governed by weight and since I weigh 220 and take 33 units a day, he isn't taking nearly enough. I think he is compensating with the humalog, which runs a higher risk that he will and does have insulin reactions. I also started out taking lantus at night. But since my blood sugar always drops at night, it caused a lot of lows for me.
