Basaglar, insulin glargine, is a type of long-acting insulin that lowers blood sugar levels in the body. Insulin is a hormone that is naturally produced by the pancreas to converts sugar (glucose) to energy. Insulin therapy is prescribed to pets with diabetes because they are unable to produce their own insulin or cannot use it properly. Because Basaglar is long acting, it takes several hours to start working and can last for a full 24 hours. Basaglar comes in a KwikPen device that can administer multiple doses as small as 1 unit, simply twist the end dial. Pen needles, sold separately, twist onto the top for ease of injection. For use with U-100 needles only.
