I have been on Lantus for several years now. My Health Insurance decided as of 1/1/23 Lantus will no longer be covered. Anthem suggested Basaglar, Levemir, Toujeo, or Tresiba. Are any of you on these, any pros or cons of each? It is always something.
I am on Humalog for Quick Acting (as far as I know, this is still covered)
Novlin r is what I use, I was on lantus . Tell your doctor. Basaagar is great. I use both. Basaagar is 24 hour insulin and novlin r is for meals like lantus is . Levemir and humalog is great to.
Basaglar and Toujeo is just Lantus that is made by different companies (Eli Lilly/Basaglar and Sanofil/Toujeo) so has different names for copyright. But they are "exactly" the same insulin formula (Glargine)
Levimir is a different formula (Detimer) and a good number of users tend to burn the stuff up quicker than intended which may mean that it becomes a twice a day dose.
Treseba is yet a third (formula/recipe - whatever) called Degludec Insulin
So if you are looking for "least likely to notice any difference at all" then Basaglar or Toujeo would be at the top of the list.
@A DiabetesTeam Member Appreciate the info!
Levemir is great 👍
