No, Glaritus, whose action is steady and prolonged, has a relatively constant concentration time profile over 24 hours with no peaks
Yes, Glaritus is available in a pen style formulation
Yes, Glaritus has a relatively constant concentration time profile over 24 hours hence it is long acting
Glaritus is modified artificially prepared insulin (equivalent to human insulin) which is completely soluble in acidic pH of the glargine solution. Glaritus acts by replacing the normal production of insulin and by helping transfer sugar from the blood into other body tissues where it is utilized to generate energy. It also stops the liver from producing more sugar. After the injection of Glaritus into the subcutaneous tissue (upper layer of skin), the acidic solution is neutralized leading to formation of micro particles (micro-precipitates) from which small amounts of Glaritus are continuously released, providing a prolonged duration of action of insulin. Glaritus solutions have long and steady blood-sugar-lowering action
The cost of Glaritus depends upon the various brands available in the market. Please read details on the package for the correct price of the produc
Unopened cartridges of Glaritus/ Lantus must be stored in a refrigerator where the temperature is between 2 - 8°C. When the cartridge has been inserted into the injection pen, the cartridge pen combination should not be put in the refrigerator and should be kept at room temperature
There are no known effects of Glaritus/lantus on weight gai
There are no known effects of Glaritus/ Lantus on causing cancer
Glaritus. Lantus is used to reduce high blood sugar (glucose) levels in people with diabetes mellitus. Glaritus is used to treat type 1 diabetes (condition in which the body does not produce insulin) and type 2 diabetes (condition in which the body does not use insulin normally)
Yes, Glaritus is a genetically modified insulin that is grown in a laboratory, and is similar to human insulin
Yes, Glaritus is safe if used at prescribed doses for the prescribed duration as advised by your doctor
Glaritus. Lantus solution must not be mixed with any other glargine or insulin preparation. Always follow the instructions of doctor regarding the dosage, frequency, duration, or use of any concomitant medications
Glaritus.Lantus is produced by recombinant DNA technology with the help of a non-pathogenic (non-disease causing) laboratory strain of bacteria (Escherichia coli [K12]) as the production organism
Q. Is Lantus insulin (insulin glargine) the same as Levemir (insulin detemir)?
Both Lantus and Levemir are both long lasting forms of insulin (made by recombinant DNA technology) and are similar to human insulin. However, the duration of Levemir is slightly shorter than Lantus
Glaritus. Lantus solutions should be clear. Do not use if Glaritus preparations is no longer clear and colorless or if it contains particles.
