Lantus to Lower Blood Sugar

Lantus® (insulin glargine) is a prescription medication used to treat following conditions:
 
Taking Lantus once a day provides a steady level of insulin for 24 hours, without any significant peaks. By lowering your blood sugar levels throughout the day, Lantus can decrease the chances of developing problems associated with high blood sugar, such as heart disease, diabetic impotence, and kidney failure.
 
The medication comes in the form of an injection that is given in the skin and fat layer of the abdomen (stomach), upper arm, or thigh. Possible side effects of Lantus include low blood sugar levels (hypoglycemia) and skin reactions at the injection site, among others.
