Types of Insulin and their Roles

Your doctor will help decide which insulin is right for you. However, one thing is true of all types of insulin. Regardless of which type of insulin you need, it can play an important role in your diabetes treatment program to help lower your blood sugar.

Mealtime Insulin

  • Helps manage blood sugar levels associated with meals
  • Works like the insulin your body would normally release when you eat

    Long-Acting Insulin, Including Lantus®

    • Provides a slow, steady release of insulin
    • Helps manage your blood sugar between meals and overnight
    FAST FACT :

    Lantus® is basal insulin approved for use once-a-day. It should be administered at the same time each day to keep your insulin level steady.

    Lantus Patient

    For me, blood sugar control is a balancing act between what I eat, how much I exercise, taking my diabetes medication, and still enjoying my culture and tradition.”
    ― Julie, taking Lantus® SoloSTAR® since 2009
