Basaglar (insulin glargine) is long-lasting insulin to treat type 1 and type 2 diabetes. It begins working several hours after injection and continues to work evenly through the day up to 24 hours. Basaglar in insulin can be used in adults and children of at least six years old.

Insulin is a naturally produced hormone that works in the body to lower blood sugar (glucose) levels. For those with diabetes, this means their pancreas does not have enough insulin or cannot correctly use the insulin produced. As a result, glucose accumulates in the bloodstream. When insulin is injected, it helps lower blood sugar levels.

Several types of insulin differ in how they are absorbed and work overtime. Insulin glargine is a long-acting insulin that can take 90 minutes to start and stop after 24 hours. Insulin glargine is released slowly and constantly into the bloodstream after injection.

Some brands of insulin glargine are explicitly used for adults. It’s important to always follow instructions and review warnings before operating your brand of insulin.

Do not share this medication with others even if they have the same condition. Your doctor should prescribe insulin.
