GET TOOLS TO HELP STAY ON TRACK WITH YOUR DIABETES

It’s never too late to focus on managing your diabetes. Whether you’re new to insulin or already on insulin, the right tools and support can help you eat right, stay active, and stick with your treatment plan.

 

 

KNOW YOUR NUMBERS

GET YOUR BLOOD SUGAR LOG

Our log can help make it easier to track how you’re doing. So be sure to share it with your doctor.

GET IN RANGE

According to the American Diabetes Association (ADA), most people with type 2 diabetes should have blood sugar levels within these ranges.

Before meals or upon waking:

80-130 mg/dL

2 hours after starting a meal:

<180 mg/dL

WHAT IS A1C?

The A1C test measures your average blood sugar levels over the past 2 to 3 months. It provides a picture of your success managing blood sugar over a longer period of time. Ask your doctor about blood sugar and A1C goals that are right for you. If your A1C is too high, ask about ways to get it on track.

BLOOD SUGAR HIGHS & LOWS: WHAT YOU SHOULD KNOW

Even if you watch what you eat, exercise regularly, and stick to your doctor’s treatment plan, there may be days when your blood sugar isn’t in your target zone, or you may even experience hypoglycemia (low blood sugar) or hyperglycemia (high blood sugar). Speak with your doctor about the signs and symptoms—and what to do if they happen to you.

Title: Cooking Right With Noemi

Noemi: Hi there. I'm Noemi [Super: (by Noemi) Lantus® Mentor], and this is Martha [Super: (by Martha) Registered Dietician]

Super: Lantus® Mentor

Noemi

Taking Lantus® (insulin glargine injection) 100 Units/mL SoloSTAR® since 2006.

Noemi: And today we're going to make a diabetes-friendly dinner.

Super: Consult with your physician or registered dietician before making any diet changes.

Martha: Making healthy food choices is part of a full diabetes treatment plan. So we're going to talk about simple ways to make smart food choices.

Noemi: Today, I want to share with you one of my favorite meals. The main dish is green chili chicken enchilada casserole. First, you need one can of green enchilada sauce. Four cups of cooked and cubed chicken. One cup of low-fat sour cream. One can of green diced chilies. And a cup of grated cheddar cheese.

Super: This recipe contains ingredients that may cause an allergic reaction in some people. Talk to your doctor about your allergies before you make any dietary changes. For those on a low sodium diet, low salt ingredients may be an option.

Martha: You really seem like you know what you’re doing.

Noemi: I may seem like a pro now, but when I was first diagnosed, I had no idea what to eat.

Martha: So, how did you actually become a pro? What did you do?

Noemi: I think the first thing I did was portion control. Especially with this meal, you really have to take portion control into consideration because it’s big and it’s really, really delicious. And if it’s in front of you, you’re probably going to eat it all like I would.

Martha: I totally agree with you about portion control. Most people eat a lot more than they think they do.

Noemi: One thing I would say to everyone is, "You can't beat yourself up about it." You know we all make mistakes.

Martha: While the enchiladas are cooking, let’s talk about things that you can do to stay on track when it comes to food.

Title: #1 Make the right portion, #2 Eat small meals, #3 Plan your meals.

Martha: The first thing is to always make the right portion. The second tip would be to eat several small meals a day instead of one or two large meals. My third tip is to plan out your meals a few days ahead of time.

Noemi: The fun part of all this is learning to make new meals like the one we’re cooking here today, which leads me to our sweet cucumbers.

ON-SCREEN:
what you’ll need
sweet cucumbers
rice vinegar 1/3 cup
sugar 1 tbsp
black pepper ¼ tsp
dillweed a pinch
sweet onions 1 cup
cucumber 1 medium size

Noemi: It’s refreshing, light, and lots of fun.

Noemi: Now doesn’t that look great?

Martha: That looks delicious!

Noemi: The next thing we’re going to make is my favorite dessert.

ON-SCREEN:
frozen strawberry smoothie
what you’ll need
low-fat yogurt
frozen strawberries
vanilla extract

Noemi: It’s a frozen strawberry smoothie. I love this dessert because it’s also a great snack.

Super: #1 Martha’s Snacking Tips

Martha: Snacks can actually be quite healthy. Some of my favorite snacks would be an ounce of low-fat cheese with a small apple. That way you’re getting the combination of some protein fat and some carbohydrates, which is a great combination.

Super: #2 Martha’s Snacking Tips

Martha: Another good idea for a snack would be two teaspoons of peanut butter and two whole grain crackers.

Super: #3 Martha’s Snacking Tips

Martha: And lastly, half a cup of cottage cheese and three-quarters of a cup of blueberries.

Noemi: Hmm, sounds yummy.

Noemi: You know cooking right doesn't happen overnight. I've had diabetes for over 16 years, and it has taken me a really long time to get to this point; to understand good foods and how to make them part of my life. Be patient with yourself; it's okay to have a bad day. I think our casserole is ready.

Noemi: And there you have it. Now remember, this dinner serves a family of four plus guests. So here are portions served for one. The sweet cucumbers have zero carbs.

Super: 0 carbs

Noemi: The enchiladas are high in protein, low in fat.

Super: high protein, low fat

Noemi: And this is our dessert. One serving has 4 grams of fiber.

Super: 4 grams of fiber

Noemi: You can't go wrong with that. Now, doesn’t that look delicious?

Martha: It looks like an absolutely delicious meal.

Noemi: I'm Noemi.

Martha: And I'm Martha.

Noemi: Thanks for watching "Cooking Right With Noemi."

Martha: Don’t forget to check out the recipe section of lantusconnection.com for the tips and recipes you saw here today.

Jim: Ted, why don't you take this one?

Ted: Thank you for the light one.

Jim: Sure, no problem. We're going to stand with our feet about shoulder-width apart. Your knees are going to be slightly bent for me, and your back is up nice and tall. We're going to raise that weight straight out in front, nice and slow and controlled, and return back to the starting position. Let's continue that for 12 repetitions.

Ted: Feels good, Jim.

Jim: Very good, Ted. Nice job. What do you say we continue on throughout the house and find more things that we can go ahead and exercise with?

Ted: You mean I don't have to go out and buy one of them big expensive dumbbells?

Jim: No. We're going to place our elbow right at our side for me, and then our feet are about shoulder-width apart, knees are slightly bent. I want you to take it all the way up to your shoulder and then slowly lower down. Good.

Jim: Just have a seat here with your hands right on the edge of the couch, with your feet right underneath of you. I just want you to slowly push up and return back to the starting position. Great job, Ted. Fifteen repetitions for me.

Jim: So, how’d you enjoy the workout?

Ted: Oh, great. I didn’t realize there’s so much you can do in the house. You know, I do walk Katie Dog every day.

Jim: Aw Ted, that’s great. It’s a great motivator to walk with a buddy and it also keeps you committed to your workout. What do you say we go take that walk now, Ted?

TED, TREATING WITH LANTUS SINCE 2006

Talk to your doctor before making any changes to your diabetes treatment plan. Individual results may vary.

Loretha: Diabetes is a lifestyle change. And it certainly helps you to know that you’re not alone on the journey. I call it a journey. I started 27 years ago and I’m still on that journey. But certainly the support that you have from your family and friends can make such a difference.

Title: Loretha’s CIRCLE OF SUPPORT

Super: Loretha Taking Lantus® (insulin glargine injection) 100 Units/mL SoloSTAR® since 2007

The fact that you all came to see me -- I know you don't have to be here for me to know that you're thinking about me and that you love me. But the fact that you came here with me, it makes all the difference in the world. So -- I just wanted to let you know that I thank you, and I appreciate you, and I love you, and you all look so good. [Laughter]

Loretha: How many years, dear?

Vern: 34 years. And I'm pleased to say there have been some good ones.

Vern: When Loretha was diagnosed with diabetes it was a traumatic matter for both of us, but considering the fact that we have gone through other hurdles and I assured her that we was going to go through that one too and she had my total support.

Delilah: Loretha and I get together and we sing through songs that inspire us.

Delilah: And she has the most fantastic voice. I can listen to her sing forever.

Delilah: I'll sit next to her and then I pretend like I'm singing as well as she does, and it is hilarious, because I feel so small next to her because she's so great at it, and it’s absolutely hilarious, but I have so much fun.

Lynda: She says I'm the funny one because if I see something happening, I can look at Loretha and me and her, like, feeling the same thing, and we kind of laugh, you know, laugh at things.

Title: LYNDA “THE SIDEKICK”

Lynda: So sometimes when she get a little down, even now sometimes, and she's, "Oh, I'm tired." I said, "Well, you can make it; you can make it," and she said, "Yes, I can, Lynda. Thank you." She said, "I can ... I can make it."

Regina: Loretha is one of those people who just gives of herself, and because she gives so much of herself, it's easy for me to give back to her.

Title: REGINA “THE SHOULDER”

Regina: I'm a substitute teacher for Loretha, and also, sometimes I sit in for her whenever she's not there. I know Loretha has her challenges with her diabetes and she’d never let that get her down.

What is Toujeo® (insulin glargine injection) 300 Units/mL?

Prescription Toujeo® is a long-acting insulin used to control blood sugar in adults with diabetes mellitus.

  • Toujeo® contains 3 times as much insulin in 1 mL as standard insulin (100 Units/mL)
  • Toujeo® is not for use to treat diabetic ketoacidosis
  • Toujeo® should not be used in children

Important Safety Information for Toujeo® (insulin glargine injection) 300 Units/mL

Do not take Toujeo® if you have low blood sugar or if you are allergic to insulin or any of the ingredients in Toujeo®.

Do NOT share your pen(s) with other people, even if the needle has been changed. You may give other people a serious infection, or get a serious infection from them.

Before starting Toujeo®, tell your doctor about all your medical conditions, including if you have liver or kidney problems, if you are pregnant or planning to become pregnant, or if you are breastfeeding or planning to breastfeed.

Heart failure can occur if you are taking insulin together with pills called TZDs (thiazolidinediones), even if you have never had heart failure or other heart problems. If you have heart failure, it may get worse while you take TZDs with Toujeo®. Your treatment with TZDs and Toujeo® may need to be changed or stopped by your doctor if you have new or worsening heart failure. Tell your doctor if you have any new or worsening symptoms, including:

  • Shortness of breath
  • Sudden weight gain
  • Swelling of your ankles or feet

Tell your doctor about all the medications you take, including OTC medicines, vitamins, supplements, and herbal supplements.

Toujeo® should be taken at the same time once a day. Test your blood sugar levels daily while using any insulin. Do not change your dose or type of insulin without talking to your doctor. Verify that you have the correct insulin before each injection. Do NOT use a syringe to remove Toujeo® from your pen. Your dose for Toujeo® may be different from other insulins you have taken. Any change of insulin should be made cautiously and only under medical supervision.

Do NOT dilute or mix Toujeo® with any other insulin or solution. It will not work as intended and you may lose blood sugar control, which could be serious. Use Toujeo® only if the solution is clear and colorless with no particles visible.

While using Toujeo®, do not drive or operate heavy machinery until you know how Toujeo® affects you. Don’t drink alcohol or use other medicines that contain alcohol.

The most common side effect of any insulin, including Toujeo®, is low blood sugar (hypoglycemia), which may be serious and life-threatening. Severe hypoglycemia may cause harm to your heart or brain. Symptoms of serious low blood sugar may include shaking, sweating, fast heartbeat, and blurred vision.

Toujeo® may cause severe allergic reactions that can lead to death. Get medical help right away if you have:

  • A rash over your whole body
  • Shortness of breath
  • Swelling of your face, tongue, or throat
  • Extreme drowsiness, dizziness, or confusion
  • Trouble breathing
  • Fast heartbeat
  • Sweating

Toujeo® may have additional side effects including swelling, weight gain, low potassium, and injection site reactions, which may include change in fat tissue, skin thickening, redness, swelling, and itching.

Toujeo® SoloStar® and Toujeo® Max SoloStar® are disposable prefilled insulin pens. It is important to perform a safety test when using a new pen for the first time. Talk to your doctor about proper injection technique and follow instructions in the Instruction Leaflet that comes with the pen.

Important Safety Information for SOLIQUA® 100/33 (insulin glargine and lixisenatide injection) 100 Units/mL and 33 mcg/mL

What is the most important information I should know about SOLIQUA 100/33?

Do not share your SOLIQUA 100/33 pen with other people, even if the needle has been changed.

SOLIQUA 100/33 can cause serious side effects, including inflammation of the pancreas, which may be life-threatening.

Before using SOLIQUA 100/33, tell your doctor if you have had pancreatitis, stones in your gallbladder, or a history of alcoholism. These medical problems may make you more likely to get pancreatitis. Stop taking SOLIQUA 100/33 and call your healthcare provider right away if you have pain in your stomach area (abdomen) that is severe, and will not go away. The pain may be felt in the back area. The pain may happen with or without vomiting.

Who should not use SOLIQUA 100/33?

Do not use SOLIQUA 100/33 if you are having an episode of low blood sugar or if you are allergic to insulin glargine, lixisenatide, or any of the ingredients in SOLIQUA 100/33.

Tell your healthcare provider about all your medical conditions, including if you:

  • have or have had problems with your pancreas, your kidneys, or your liver, stones in your gallbladder, or a history of alcoholism.
  • have heart failure or other heart problems. If you have heart failure, it may get worse while you take TZDs (thiazolidinediones).

How should I use SOLIQUA 100/33?

  • Do not change your dose without first talking to your healthcare provider.
  • Check the pen label each time you inject to make sure you are using the correct medicine.
  • Do not take more than 60 units of SOLIQUA 100/33 each day. Do not take SOLIQUA 100/33 with other GLP-1 receptor agonists.
  • Only use SOLIQUA 100/33 that is clear and colorless to almost colorless. If you see small particles, return it to your pharmacy for replacement.
  • Do not remove SOLIQUA 100/33 from the pen with a syringe.
  • Do not re-use or share needles with other people. You may give other people a serious infection, or get a serious infection from them.
  • Check your blood sugar levels. Ask your healthcare provider what your blood sugar should be and when you should check.

SOLIQUA 100/33 may cause serious side effects, including:

  • Serious allergic reactions. Stop taking SOLIQUA 100/33 and get help right away if you have any symptoms of a serious allergic reaction, including swelling of your face, lips, tongue, or throat, problems breathing or swallowing, severe rash or itching, fainting or feeling dizzy, and very rapid heartbeat.
  • Low blood sugar (hypoglycemia). Your risk for getting low blood sugar is higher if you take another medicine that can cause low blood sugar. Signs and symptoms of low blood sugar may include headache, dizziness, drowsiness, confusion, weakness, irritability, hunger, sweating, fast heartbeat, and feeling jittery.
  • Kidney problems (kidney failure). In people who have kidney problems, diarrhea, nausea, and vomiting may cause a loss of fluids (dehydration), which may worsen kidney problems.
  • Low potassium in your blood (hypokalemia).
  • Heart failure. Taking certain diabetes pills called TZDs (thiazolidinediones) with SOLIQUA 100/33 may cause heart failure in some people. This can happen even if you have never had heart failure or heart problems before. If you already have heart failure, it may get worse while you take TZDs with SOLIQUA 100/33. Tell your healthcare provider if you have any new or worse symptoms of heart failure, including shortness of breath, swelling of your ankles or feet, sudden weight gain.

The most common side effects of SOLIQUA 100/33 may include low blood sugar (hypoglycemia), stuffy or runny nose and sore throat, upper respiratory tract infection, headache, allergic reactions, nausea, and diarrhea. Nausea and diarrhea usually happen more often when you start using SOLIQUA 100/33.
