When you eat, you need the fast acting insulin like Novolog
to act quickly to cover the meal. For some, Lantus and Levemir
act the same. For me, Levemir seemed to work better in that it provided more consistency to my blood sugar levels. I like Levemir. I have switched to 2 shots per day (morning and night) instead of just taking the 1 shot at night, because the 1 shot at night may not cover the 24 hours.
