It also stops the liver from producing more sugar. After the injection of Lantus 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 Lantus are continuously released, providing a prolonged duration of action of insulin. Lantus solutions have long and steady blood-sugar-lowering action
