Yes, I agree. I tried all sorts of long acting insulin at all times of the day. All of them have times when they peak and fall off in action (apart, allegedly, from Lantus) and even timing that would not have helped me. Because they are ALWAYS working, and their action could never work at the right times for me. I can also turn my basal right down when doing exercise – I take 10% of my basal rate, whatever time I exercise, and this compensates for the energy used, as well as eating. I used to find i couldn’t eat enough to be able to exercise without becoming hypo. It has freed me.
