You’ve been taking Lantus® for a while. By now, you know that many things can impact your blood sugar levels. Like the foods you eat, your overall activity level, and even your stress levels.
That’s why it’s important to stay focused on your goals―for yourself and for those you love.
According to the American Diabetes Association (ADA), most people with type 2 diabetes should have blood sugar levels within this range:
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, and if your A1C is too high, ask about ways you can get it on track.
It is recommended that your doctor measure your A1C level at least twice a year—minimum. There are times when you need to have your A1C level checked about every 3 months.
Individual results may vary.
