Diabetes is the No. 6 leading causes of deaths in the United States, according to 2001 data  from the United States National Center for Health Statistics.

Lantus Insulin

(LANTUS? insulin glargine [rDNA origin] injection)

What is unique about Lantus? It is the only insulin analog used once a day that is proven to lower basal glucose levels for a full 24 hours with no pronounced peak.

Indications and Usage

Lantus is indicated for once-daily subcutaneous administration at bedtime in the treatment of adult and pediatric patients with type 1 diabetes mellitus or adult patients with type 2 diabetes mellitus who require basal (long-acting) insulin for the control of hyperglycemia.

Only a doctor can decide for sure if Lantus is the right therapy. However, patients may want to discuss Lantus with their doctor if any of these apply:

  • Patient?s blood sugar is too high despite efforts to control it with diet, exercise or oral diabetes medication.
  • Patient is currently using an intermediate-acting insulin (such as NPH) once a day and wants 24-hour basal coverage.
  • Patient would rather take one injection of Lantus than two of NPH.

Mechanism of Action

Lantus is a long-acting insulin analog that helps the body regulate the removal of glucose from the bloodstream. It is the first analog with a 24-hour glucose lowering effect with no pronounced peak of action, providing a continuous, steady release. Lantus also demonstrates a slower, more prolonged absorption and a relatively constant concentration/time profile over 24 hours.

Lantus could be considered an alternative insulin medication to intermediate or long-acting insulins, including neutral protamine Hagedorn (NPH), Lente?, and Ultralente?. The potency of Lantus is approximately the same as human insulin.

What Lantus is not meant to replace is short-acting insulins such as Regular or Humalog?, which provides a ?bolus? at mealtime. Oral diabetes medications and/or short acting insulin to control diabetes can be used with Lantus.

Key Benefits

  • No pronounced peak.
  • Only insulin analog used once a day, proven to lower basal glucose levels for a full 24 hours.
  • Can be used with oral diabetes medications and/or short-acting insulin to control diabetes.

Clinical Studies

More than 4,000 people with diabetes, including people with type 1 diabetes age six and above, and adults with type 2 diabetes, participated in clinical studies that compared the safe and efficacy of once-daily Lantus injections with the same attributes of once-daily and twice-daily injections of NPH human insulin, the most commonly used intermediate-acting insulin.

Safety and Precautions

Lantus must not be diluted or mixed with any other insulin or solution. If mixed or diluted, the solution may become cloudy, and the onset of action/time to peak effect may be altered in an unpredictable manner.

Potential Adverse Events

The adverse effects most commonly associated with Lantus including hypoglycemia, lipodystrophy, skin reactions and allergic reactions.
