Understand How "Basal" Insulins for Type 2 Diabetes Compare
You'll hear about the pros and cons of "basal" insulins for type 2 diabetes...Basaglar, Lantus, Levemir, NPH, Toujeo, and Tresiba.
These longer-acting insulins work throughout the day to keep blood sugars in check...and most are usually given once a day.
The best choice of basal insulin usually comes down to patient preference and cost. All basal insulins control blood sugar about the same for most patients with type 2 diabetes...but some are more expensive.
