Diabetes ABCs: L

Lantus (also called Glargine) is a long acting, man-made version of human insulin that is meant to be taken daily to regulate both Type 1 and Type 2 Diabetes. It’s available by prescription and should be taken at about the same time daily to keep the blood sugar stable. It works like a time release capsule, slowly releasing insulin into the blood stream to control blood sugar. The dose can be adjusted as needed to ensure good diabetes control. It should never be mixed with other insulins.
