Lantus® (insulin glargine) is a new, very long acting insulin. It has a remarkably flat action profile that lasts 24 hours, making it an excellent basal insulin. Of injection users who know about Lantus, over one-third have already switched their basal insulin to Lantus, and another 39% are considering it. Interest among pump users is considerably less, with 95% of pump users planning to stick with insulin pump therapy. One third of all people who responded were unfamiliar with Lantus, however.

New insulins like Lantus and Humalog offer new choices for people with diabetes who use insulin. Plus, there are even more new insulins on the horizon. If you're unfamiliar with these new insulins, ask your diabetes team about them.
