How It Works
In people with diabetes, the pancreas does not produce enough (or any) insulin and/or the body doesn't use insulin the right way. As a result, blood sugar is unregulated, leading to many complications. Lantus Solostar helps the body process blood sugar appropriately. Lantus Solostar is a long-acting form of insulin. Everyone with diabetes is advised to follow a relatively strict diet and exercise regimen.
As a long-acting insulin product, Lantus Solostar is typically injected only once each day. Patients should try to perform their injections about the same time each day. Precise dosage and other instructions will always depend on a patient's unique medical condition and history.
Side Effects and Safety Precautions
Irritation, redness and swelling at the site of injection is common with Lantus Solostar and similar insulin products. Low and high blood sugar events are always a risk for people with diabetes; it's important to know the signs of either condition and have a plan for remedying them or getting help quickly. Tell your doctor if you might have an allergy to any ingredients in Lantus Solostar.
