Default Lantus

I had adverse reactions to Lantus in the form of severe leg cramps. Just wanted to know if anyone else experienced this reaction.

I was on a mixture of humulin N along with Humalog but kept having too many hypoglycemic episodes when the humulin N would peak. I now use the Lantus and I've noticed much greater control. The only negative I've noticed is that I am having severe pain in both my knees, and much more pain in my feet, since I started on the Lantus (25 units at bedtime)

Interesting, I have been getting occasional severe leg cramps at night and both my knees hurt for periods of time. I've been on Lantus for almost 2 years.

I also have been experiencing very sore knees, ankle swelling and pain and soreness in my shinbones. I will be seeing my Dr. shortly, but suspect the Lantus, as the sytoms seem worse about an hour after the dosage (70) and I am in pain all night. Any others with these symptoms please e-mail me.

Default insulin

I am not on Lantus, but I want to share my story. I am (was) on Humulin, on plenty of it. I had gained up to 299 lbs. I am on oxygen and use a wheelchair a lot. I tried hard to loose weight, mentioned to my doc that I couldn't loose. He said it's the insulin makes it so hard to loose. That was all I needed to hear. I stopped the insulin cold. I refused to eat any more white flour, sugar, or anything else white, and I closely watch all starchy foods. I splurge (rarely) occasionally. You'd be surprised at all the wonderful food still available. I don't count calories. I sort of halfway follow the Atkins diet. I have lost 66 lbs. slowly, but it is GONE! I didn't tell my doc that I had quit insulin until AFTER I had about 6 months of PERFECT blood sugar tests behind me. I feel much better, I still got another 50 or 60 lbs. to go, I gained 3 the last time I weighed, so I MUST tighten up more. I found if you can force yourself to stay off the sweets for about 5 days it will get out of your system and you won't crave it so bad. You have to just psyche yourself up and make up your mind this is going to work no matter what. I didn't even tell anyone for a long time. I kept a close watch on my sugar levels, and I would have to take a small dose occasionally, but now, I actually had the privelege of hearing my doc say he was proud of me, my levels are perfect. It CAN be done with determination and naturally. God Bless.
