Another reason to split is that many people don’t have consistent schedules where they give their one dose of Lantus at the same time every day. If someone gives Levemir at bedtime but goes to bed later on Fridays and Saturdays, a gap in coverage will occur on Friday night into Saturday morning, and some doubling of the action occurs when they return to their usual schedule. Splitting the dose greatly minimizes these timing issues even if the two split doses are not given at exactly the same time of day.
