What Is Toujeo?
Toujeo (insulin glargine) is a long-acting form of insulin used to lower glucose or blood sugar levels in adults with type 1 or type 2 diabetes. It is not yet approved for use by children. As a long-acting insulin, Toujeo works steadily over a 24-hour period. It must not be used during an episode of ketoacidosis or hypoglycemia.
Toujeo is available in two disposable, pre-filled pen injector versions: Toujeo Max SoloStar and Toujeo SoloStar. This allows for flexibility should insulin dosage needs change over time.
The Toujeo Max SoloStar injector contains 900 units delivered in 2-unit increments with a maximum dose of 160 units. Toujeo SoloStar contains 450 units delivered in 1-unit increments with a maximum dose of 80 units. Trujeo also boasts the lowest injection volume compared to other long-acting insulins currently on the market.
What Does Simplefill Provide?
We are well aware of how stressful living with diabetes can be. Even people with insurance may have trouble paying for their insulin, and the uninsured or underinsured are often truly burdened by prescription costs. We aim to ease that stress by helping you get the financial assistance you need to pay for your Toujeo prescription.
Many patients are not aware of the patient assistance programs offered by pharmaceutical companies and other organizations. At Simplefill, we help our clients find the programs they qualify for, submit applications on their behalf, and get them enrolled once approved.
How Does Toujeo Work?
The hormone insulin is produced in the pancreas and facilitates the conversion of glucose into energy. When food is consumed, blood sugar levels rise, and the pancreas produces insulin, which opens cells to allow the introduction of glucose for conversion into energy. Those with diabetes, however, store too much glucose or sugar in the blood, which leads to disease.
Toujeo mimics the body’s natural production of insulin by providing a gradual release over a 24-hour period. Its adjustable injection mechanism and gradual release allow for flexible and steady insulin treatment, decreasing the likelihood of uncontrolled or poorly managed diabetes. It is important not to miss a dose or stop using Toujeo without medical supervision.
