I have been diagnosed as pre-diabetic and my endocrinologist has enrolled me in a clinical
trial of a low dose of Lantus insulin to keep me from full blown diabetes. The target is 95 for secutive five days. OtherwiseI increase it one unit every week. When she first started me
on the insulin shots I asked her about cocktail hour. She repllied this was a baby dose
and not to worry about discontinuing cocktail hour. I am now up to 58 units once a day of
Lantus insulin. I am wondering if this is still considered a baby dose. I don't see her until
September so would appreciate any input from this forum.
