Joyce: Lantus is a long-acting insulin. Onset is 1-3 hours, no peak; acts as a basal insulin and duration is about 24 hours. Actrapid is a short acting insulin with an onset of 30 minutes and a duration of about 8 hours. Your son may be thinking of a rapid acting insulin such as Novolog(aspart) which is used in the United States and may be called by another name where you are from. Rapid acting insulin such as Novolog onset is within 15 minutes and has a duration of 4 hours; Novolog is usually taken before meals to cover carbohydrates eaten.
How long does "Lantus" take before it starts working? I am currently on Act Rapid before meals & can take 1/4 hr before hand.. but have been told it is "Old fashioned " & lantus is the way to go, my son says Lantus works so quick that U have to get your meal in minutes or else U may go on a low... Can some one help?
Over four years ago I was diagnosed with type 2 diabetes, but last year they finally tested GAD antibodies and found I am type 1. For eleven months I injected levemir, which depressed me. It was not until July that I decided to manage diabetes without insulin and immediately my blood sugar went down. This has been over a month now and I am looking forward to my next HbA1C test to confirm that my mistrust of injections raises my stress levels and therefore blood sugar levels to unacceptable proportions.
I wish I could value medical opinion but it does not seem to have done me any good.
My intention is to gradually improve my immune functionality. It is an uphill struggle, but the results are independence.
Thank you for this article. I realise I am an exception, but I hope that other people may also enjoy the joy of freedom from medical interference. Diagnosis should not be a life sentence.
I wish you each success in living life on your own terms.
I would encourage those whose income is low to ask their doctor is they will sign forms for prescription assistance from the drug companies. There are income limits which vary between companies, so check those out first. Go to needymeds.org click on brand name drug, click on the medicine you take. It will tell the percentage of the federsl poverty level that is allowed. There is a little FPL icon that you can click and input your income for the household. It will tell you the percent of poverty for your income. Lilly and Humalog are 300% of poverty. Lantus is less than 250% of poverty, and Novolog is 200% of poverty. If you qualify, full out the application, take it to your doctor and get free medication for the year. If you don't qualify, look for coupons to help with copays or lower your cost. Needy meds has a drug discount card online that you can print out that can lower your cost. Check around because some pharmacies are much lower cost than others.
I eat regularly bitter melon (bitter gourd vegetable) very common in India and available in most grocery stores here in the U.S. and control my sugar level without the use of (LANTUS). Of course, I walk half a mile every day and I am a strict vegetarian since the childhood.
I would also suggest make a juice of bitter melon (with Guava fruit or Pineapple to ward off the bitterness) for the effective control of the your sugar level.
I found your article very interesting. I have had diabetes for a very long time and no one ever said there were alternatives. This is typical to this disease. From almost day one I would test 4 times daily but never really knew if I was doing well or not. I wrote it down all of the time but that was meaningless. As a result I developed my own chart that I call the TRACKER. From using this chart I have been able to lower my dosage and keep my readings between 81 and 140. Using the Tracker would also help all diabetics to reduce their usage (save money}.
I whole heartedly agree with your statements. Many people are not aware that WalMart's Reli On brand of NPH or Regular is actually made by Novo-Nordisk, but available at a fraction of the price. I see many patients in the hospital where I work as a CDE that are given Lantus during their hospital stay but must be converted to NPH during discharge to increase the likelihood that the patient will be able to afford the insulin and take it as directed. I often tell patients "all of us would like a Lexus, but a Ford can get you around just as good".
