    Lantus is not a preworkout insulin. There is no real peak like there would be with humilin or humalog. Lantus is a long acting insulin that helps shuttles nutrients all day. I have used 50 iu a day without going hypo. 4 week cycles and I would suggest a GDA ( ALA-R, Berberine, metformin) when off cycle.

    I like it because I don't get bloated like I do when I use humalog or humilin. Lantus also gives me a pumps that seems to last all day

    So would you not recommend doing another inslin preworkout along with lantus?

    You can use another insulin on top of the lantus as a preworkout but lower the dose of the other insulin you are using on top of the insulin.

    A blood glucose meter helps monitor things.
    This was my last run:
    3 weeks
    50 iu lantus
    2 iu humulin r with 1 iu pharma gh x 4 a day

    My fasted blood glucose was still between 82-89 so I could have gone longer but chose to cycle off because it was my first run

    Lol guess some people have to learn the hard way. Knock yourself out. Simple English for everyone to understand. Your body has this weird thing that if it senses a chemical in the body it won't produce more till it's depleted. I.E. inject test and your balls shut down. Inject GH when your body is supposed to release it, it won't. What's the reason they say to not start steroids early? Cause you might shutdown and not start back up. Well keep injecting long acting insulin and the pancreas stops producing. Might not start back up. Guess what that's called? Diabetes

    Hence the reason why people keep the cycles short. Time on time off

    Btw, pretty sure OP knows what you are warning us about. I think we are past that point if he is asking for input in regards to use

    You are a wealth of knowledge and it comes from first hand experience. I thank you very much sir.

    So you've only used it once for 3 weeks and you are recommending it? Guess if you think its going to do that much to outweigh the risks knock yourself out. Im bigger then most and only tried Humlin-R for 3 weeks once. Didn't like it. But to each his own. Just don't sit here and tell people how safe it is when you've only used it once. Its not safe, insulin is the most powerful hormone in the body and being a diabetic for life isn't either.

    Just a note .

    Please use correct unit of measurement when talking insulin dosages .

    Its units not iu's .

    Someone maybe reading this and ACTUALLY not know how to dose correctly .

    I apologize for being so cavalier about the safety of insulin. I probably should have been more specific about it.

    I have plenty of experience with log and r. Yes, it was a 3 week run with lantus where I worked my doses up. Lantus is nothing like using log or r. You do not have to time your carbs around the injections like log or r. The chances of going hypo on lantus is much less than log or r. I monitor my blood glucose and keep notes. Insulin can be dangerous but doing your homework and self awareness is a must. Unless you have used lantus to compare, you will continue to think that you can go hypo on it the same as youj would on log or r. I do agree that lantus can turn you diabetic same as log or r.

    "Lantus" specifically....? Or Insulin in general..?

    I'm not entirely familiar with Lantus, whether it is just another form of slin { that mimic's the body's own, Like Humulin-R., or something entirely different...! }

    But, have used both, Novalog/ Humalog, and to a lesser extent, the Humulin-R, along with GH, and t3,/or t4 or combo thereof..! I certainly aren't going to boast it, especially in an irresponsible way. All, are, and can be dangerous, if you don't know WTF your doing.

    And "always" heed caution to the wind, as in what to expect, and/or to 'justify' it's use, as it can be dangerous,
    and recommended "only" for Pro's, or chasing elite pro status.

    'Size'
    Don't ask the Question, If your 'NOT ' prepared to
    Hear the answer.......!,

    I "Don't" sugar coat shit....!
    I'm 'not' Willy Wonka....!

    I should have replied in a more informative manner. My initial reply was careless and created a nonchalant
    Attitude.
    My apologies to the board members
