Use

Both Levemir and Lantus are given through injection in the same way. You can give injections to yourself or have someone you know give them to you. Injection should go under your skin. Never inject these drugs in vein or muscle. It is important to rotate injection sites around your abdomen, upper legs, and upper arms. Doing so helps you avoid lipodystrophy at injection sites. You shouldnt use either drug with insulin pump. Doing so can result in severe hypoglycemia. This can be a life - threatening complication. Your initial dose of either drug depends on the specifics of your diabetes. The solution for injection for Levemir and Lantus is 100 units / mL. Both are available in 10 - mL vials. Theyre also available in 3 - mL injection devices. The solution is clear and colorless. Injection devices are more convenient because the solution is already in the device that injects it. The device also has clear numeric marks that help make incorrect dosing less likely. The rate at which Levemir is absorbed into your body depends on your dose. It also depends on whether you take your daily dose all at once or at two different times. Levemir generally reaches peak concentration in your blood six to eight hours after you take it. The concentration of Levemir in your blood can remain close to peak levels for up to 24 hours. On other hand, Lantus has no clear peak. It absorbs into your body more slowly and steadily than Levemir. It maintains fairly constant concentration for about 24 hours. That say, absorption of either product may vary. It is important for you to check your blood sugar level regularly.

Levemir and Lantus are both long - acting injectable insulins that can be used for long - term management of diabetes. Insulin is a hormone that is naturally produced in the body by the pancreas.

Excess sugar in your blood can also damage different parts of your body, including your blood vessels and kidneys. Everyone with type 1 diabetes and many people with type 2 diabetes must use insulin to maintain healthy blood sugar levels.

Study Design

Open - label, parallel - group, noninferiority trial of 582 insulin - naive patients with type 2 diabetes. Patients were randomized 1: 1 to receive Lantus or insulin detemir once daily as add - on therapy to oral glucose - lowering drugs. Both insulins were TITRATE to FPG target of 108 mg / dL. An Additional morning insulin dose of insulin detemir was allowed if pre - dinner PG was > 126 mg / dL, but only if pre - breakfast PG was < 126 mg / dL or nocturnal hypoglycemia precluded achievement of the FPG target. Participants were eligible for A1C range of 7. 5% to 10%. The primary endpoint was change in A1C at the end of the treatment period.
