Default Lantus

I've been using Lantus for almost a year now and find that it is important to keep it refrigerated. It has a normal 28 day life after first use which diminishes drastically when not refrigerated. I've found my blood sugars to increase toward the end of it's life. My regimine includes usage of Humalog at mealtime...this is where my problems with low blood sugar readings is most prevalent. Attention to frequent readings,eating on time, and constant monitoring is very important. My current dosage is 40 units of Lantus per day...with the mealtime dosages of Humalog throughout the day.
