Simplefill is committed to helping Americans who are struggling to pay for the prescription medications they need to manage chronic medical conditions such as severe hypoglycemia. Continue reading to learn about our Zegalogue patient assistance program, and apply today.
What Is Zegalogue?
Zegalogue (dasiglucagon) is used to treat very low blood sugar levels (severe hypoglycemia) in diabetics who are six and older. It works due to being a stable glucagon analog that causes the liver to release more glucose into the bloodstream.
Zegalogue is offered as a one-time use prefilled syringe or autoinjector and is given by injection into the abdomen, butt, upper arm, or thigh. Diabetes patients who are unconscious or unable to swallow can use Zegalogue, making it a useful emergency treatment for extreme hypoglycemia.
What Does Simplefill Provide?
Those who suffer from severe hypoglycemia or low blood sugar are at risk of life-threatening circumstances if they don’t have access to emergency medications like Zegalogue. This medication can save lives if the individual cannot swallow or is unconscious. Without Zegalogue, hypoglycemia may lead to confusion, seizures, coma, and even death.
Lack of financial means can have a detrimental effect on a patient’s quality of life and long-term prognosis when suffering from diabetes and hypoglycemia. Even individuals who have prescription insurance may struggle to cover their high out-of-pocket expenses. Patient assistance programs can be useful, but many people who might be eligible for support are not aware that assistance is offered. Simplefill works hard to promote patient support and link those in need with the right programs that provide help.
How Does Zegalogue Work?
Zegalogue stimulates the release of glucose from the liver into the bloodstream, which then raises blood sugar levels rapidly. It does this by triggering the liver to break down glycogen, which is a stored form of glucose.
