About Lantus and Diabetes
LANTUS® can lower blood sugar best when taken in the amount that’s right for your body. Work closely with your healthcare provider to determine the right dose for you.
When you first start your LANTUS® insulin treatment, your healthcare provider may prescribe a low insulin dose, often 10 units, to see how well it helps lower your blood sugar. Then, over time, your healthcare provider might increase the dosage, until he or she decides you are getting the right dose for you.
The American Diabetes Association’s (ADA) recommended guidelines for a healthy range of blood glucose levels are:
- Before meals or upon waking: 70-130 mg/dL
- 2 hours after the start of a meal: <180 mg/dL
It is very important to check your blood sugar regularly every day and keep a record of your results. When you keep a good record and show it to your healthcare provider, you have a good picture of your body’s response to your diabetes care plan. Blood sugar level checks let you see what works and what doesn’t. This allows you and your healthcare provider, dietitian, or nurse educator to make needed changes.
