Lantus and Diabetes Control

If you are looking for ways to control your diabetes, Lantus® (insulin glargine) may be an effective medication for your situation. The drug works by providing a steady amount of insulin throughout the day, which helps the body remove sugar from the blood. It comes in injectable form and is taken once a day.
 
Studies have shown that by getting blood sugar levels under control with Lantus, it may be possible to decrease the chances for developing serious health problems in the eyes, feet, hands, kidneys, and heart. However, this product is not suitable for everyone. To avoid complications,tell your healthcare provider about any other medical conditions you have and any other medicines you are taking (including vitamins, supplements, and nonprescription drugs).
