I’d say the work is no harder, but I have found there’s much more of it. I test far more than I did (was doing 5-6 a day, now more like 8-9 a day), and I have found I’m far more sensitive to outside changes that were previously masked by the sledgehammer effect of Lantus (stress, hormones, illness, tidetimes etc) – hence there’s more work to keep things steady.
But as @stephen says, the more you put in, the more you get out. Carb counting has to be even more precise in my experience (ydmv!), allowing for even gentle exercise (wandering round the shops) has to be catered for in a way never before required, but once you know what your needs are and when, you’ll be perfectly able to cope.
