Lantus Uses

Lantus Use in Children

Lantus is approved for use in children as young as six years old with type 1 diabetes. Lantus is not yet approved for treating type 2 diabetes in children, as it has not been adequately studied for this age group. Discuss the potential risks and benefits of the drug with your child's healthcare provider.
 

Off-Label Lantus Uses

On occasion, your healthcare provider may recommend Lantus for something other than the uses discussed in this article. Using the drug to treat type 2 diabetes in children is an off-label Lantus use, as is using it to treat gestational diabetes.
