Treseba Side Effects
A DiabetesTeam Member asked a question 💭

Hi, wondering if anyone is on Treseba (the long acting insulin) and if so did you have any "undocumented" side effects?

I have been on Treseba now for almost 6 months along with taking Rapid insulin at meals.

I am noticing that I have had to increase my before bedtime Treseba dose to more than what I was taking on 50/50 and it doesn't seem to be managing my AIC levels as well as my 50/50 insulin did.

I also have had feeling of shortness of breath at times so my Ventalin usuage has also… read more

Lantus Vs The Other Long Lasting Insulins
A DiabetesTeam Member asked a question 💭

I'm on Lantus-20 units at night, Trulicity .75, and Novolog sliding scale. My insurance will no longer pay for Lantus. The alternates are Basaglar, Levemir, and Tresiba. Which one is the best? I hear there is a trial going on for a weekly long lasting insulin. Any thoughts?

A DiabetesTeam Member

If you are otherwise happy with the Lantus then Basaglar is "identical" - same insulin, same formula, same production

Lantus is made by Sanofi and Basaglar is made by Mylan - so simply two different… read more

I Have Been On Lantus For Several Years Now. My Health Insurance Decided As Of 1/1/23 Lantus Will No Longer Be Covered.
A DiabetesTeam Member asked a question 💭

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)

Thanks

Pain From Insulin?
A DiabetesTeam Member asked a question 💭

Within the last 3 years I have been getting a spreading burning sensation off and on. I will inject into either the left or right side and a painful burn will spread from the site and go across my belly to the other side. It's not from going too fast.. Anyone else run into this?

A DiabetesTeam Member

Thank you for the suggestion. I will look into it.
