What is Basaglar?
Basaglar (insulin glargine) is a long-acting insulin analog that works over a 24-hour period to reduce glucose levels in the blood. Controlling blood sugar is vital for children and adults dealing with diabetes mellitus.
Basaglar is unique in that it is used to treat both type 1 and type 2 diabetes. It can be taken by adults and by children who are at least six years of age, which is significant because most types of insulin glargine can only be used by adults.
Basaglar is injected under the skin with a pen injector that can be used at home. Basaglar must not be combined with other insulins. It is important to consult with your doctor before changing dosage. Be sure to seek immediate medical attention at the first sign of an allergic reaction to Basaglar, which can include:
- Difficulty breathing
- Rapid heartbeat
- Swelling of the tongue or throat
- Swelling or inflammation at the injection site

How does Basaglar Work?
As an insulin analog (synthetic insulin), Basaglar has certain advantages over the human and animal insulin that were used previously to treat diabetes. Injecting human or animal insulin presents some challenges. Both tend to clump when concentrated in a vial or cartridge, which results in slow, unpredictable absorption when injected.
Basaglar and other synthetic forms of insulin work more predictably. Long-acting insulin analogs like Basaglar not only last longer than human or animal insulin, but also have a more even effect without major peaks or valleys. Basaglar owes these properties to certain alterations at the molecular level that makes it more soluble and better suited for injection and ready absorption under the skin.
