Insulin Glargine Pen

Uses Insulin glargine is used with a proper diet and exercise program to control high blood sugar in people with diabetes. Controlling high blood sugar helps prevent kidney damage, blindness, nerve problems, loss of limbs, and sexual function problems. Proper control of diabetes may also lessen your risk of a heart attack or stroke. Insulin glargine is a man-made product that is similar to human insulin. It replaces the insulin that your body would normally make. It acts longer than regular insulin, providing a low, steady level of insulin. It works by helping blood sugar (glucose) get into cells so your body can use it for energy. Insulin glargine may be used with a shorter-acting insulin product. It may also be used alone or with other diabetes drugs. How to use Insulin Glargine Pen Read the Patient Information Leaflet and Instructions for Use if available from your pharmacist before you start using this medication and each time you get a refill. If you have any questions, ask your doctor, diabetes educator, or pharmacist. This insulin product is a concentrated form of standard insulin (3 times as much insulin in each milliliter).

    What are the signs a bottle of ProZinc has gone bad or going bad?
    Here is why I ask....
    -My bottle is a little more the 1/2 full & it's all cloudy. It hasn't been like this in the past. It looks as if I have already mixed it. Exp date 1/13
    -I did catch myself shaking it last week. (habit from shaking the Claramox)
    -Last month I left it out for about 4 hours.
    -I haven't seen any particles floating in it. I held up to the under cabinet lighting & haven't seen anything.
    -The last thing ....Baxters BG #s have been high. Yesterday he was flat almost all day.
    Maybe the ProZinc isn't the problem. I am just trying to rule out things.
    Thank you,

    Unfortunately, unless there are particles (a clear sign), the only other way to really know is to buy a new vial.
    Anything else change? Your cycles before yesterday were looking good.
    I remember you were switching from shooting early at pmps to a 12/12 schedule. Any change that was the blip yesterday?

    Hi Jenn,
    I just went through this. I was approx half way through my bottle and Jax's numbers were starting to fall flat. I did a few things to rule out other things. One cycle I reduced his normal intake of food by half ...nothing. Flat #'s. Then I increased his dose... Nothing! Like you, there were no floaties but I did leave out his insulin from time to time for 30 mins or so before remembering. However, check out my last two update threads in what to watch out for with a new bottle. Typing this on my cellphone which is not the easiest thing to do! Good luck!
