control of blood sugars

I have had diabetes for 30 years.I had much better control when I was using humuln  n and humulin  r . I am now taking lantus and novolog .I have had to increase  my dosages and am still having a hard time getting control of my blood sugars. My aic is 7.8 this quarter vs 8. last quarter. should I go back to using the older drugs that gave me better control?

Hello.  If older drugs worked better for you, sure go back.
