@ShariWiltrout @tylerdennen @thatscorpioxo i shouldve explained better so i will now. its “like” humalog and lantus meaning one is long acting and one is fast acting but both can cause different outcomes compared to other insulins. discuss with your doctor and theyll discuss your carb/correction ratio. 😊

@golding_melanie @TheBlueGem3 @jkenney @LukaszukAB @JanisIrwin @RachelNotley While @jkenney is an absolute ass, #HumanScum I can comment on one of the biosimilars. I do know for a fact that the biosimilar Glargine called Basaglar gives identical reaction as Glargine Lantus. I know many in the US who cannot afford Lantus, are using Basaglar & are OK on it.

@diamondjulie @EasternHealthNL @DiabetesCanada @JDRF_Canada I decided to stock up on Thursday. Lots of juice, too. If anyone in Centre city is stuck and needs Humalog or Lantus, I am happy to bring some.

@LauraKB67 Yes they do. And to top it off different co.s cover different insulin. Had to switch back and forth between Basaglar and Lantus the last 3 years because of it

New clerk left out 17 bottles of Lantus overnight for a patient. FFFUUUUUUUCCCCCKKKKKKK!!!!

@lincolncove @RachelNotley Oh really. My sister is on Lantus, switching her will be difficult. Can’t believe this gov is doing this...

@ericthemed so apparently my novolog isn’t covered anymore! Is your office open Monday (MLK Day)? I need to call and have you change that to humalog and also probably switch me back to lantus 🥴🙄😳

@Kidfears99 The PBM ( pharmacy benefit manager) is responsible for price gouging. Pharma must pay PBMS rebates to have their products on PBM's formulary. This is why cash price Lantus, Apidra $99/month. PBMs bought 99% of lawmakers to practice w/t oversight, over charge medicaid $ millions

@JBilhorn @MamaCoffeeCat @hassankhan I'm thinking we need to try GoodRx with Cissy's Lantus. It's $300 a bottle (about $2/day), up from $250 fourteen months ago. And, bad as that is, mom once dropped and broke a 2/3 full bottle. It nearly killed her. Mom, I mean.

i hv a foreigner customer back then. he was a student & diagnosed with type 1 dm. he came every month to buy insulin. but he can only buy lantus 1 box only. that is way less than he was prescribed. but becuase the price was high, he couldn't afford his full prescription.

@Talthor @SpunkyAlternate @jkenney This happened b4 when I did TM in 2015. For obv reasons, I couldn't wear my pump & Lantus didn't work. I spent the whole time at 25 mmol-being in VT, I was determined to finish the course. I don't think I went into DKA (never threw up) & I kept up with giving fast-acting insulin

@Talthor @SpunkyAlternate @jkenney Lantus didn't work & I was up all night injecting fast acting insulin. By the time I came in 4 surgery, I was able to maintain 8.2 mmol but was very concerned as I had taken over 20ccs of Lantus. The anesthesiologist put me on a 'sliding scale' & I made it thru 2hrs of surgery.

@mamaz099 @denmit160 @BernieSanders Prescription insulin costs $200-$700 a vial, in the US. Walmart insulin, which is not the same as prescribed insulin, is $25 a vial. Most diabetics need the prescribed insulin. Novolog, Humalog, Lantus, Levemir, Apidra. These are prescribed and costly. Very costly.

@ellmailey @novonordisk Have you had same symptoms with any other insulin? I'm sure Lantus did similar but left an actual bruise. And so did Apidra. But never had with my porcine insulin. These rDNA insulins don't smell the same and i think the smell is the sterilisation component of insulin.

@geraldposner I am diabetic and take lantus, 350.00 per month, and Novalog a fast acting insulin, 300.00. I have double insurance and so I pay 3.50 peg bottle under plan D

@Talthor @SpunkyAlternate @jkenney Most ppl, incl many medical personnel/specialists here don't understand that even if we don't eat anything our b/s will rise 2 a life-threatening level within 24 hrs (+33.3 mmol). Lantus only lasted in my system for 15 hrs, peaking after only 10 hrs which would cause a severe low

@Talthor @SpunkyAlternate @jkenney Is Tresiba covered? I only ask as fellow #T1D. Lantus doesn't last the full 24 hours in my system & Tresiba was recommended for me. I'm currently on an out-dated pump but it works well & the hourly novarapid injections work perfectly still, until I'm no longer covered.

@SpunkyAlternate @jkenney Got the letter from BX yesterday advising that my Lantus will no longer be covered and I will have to switch to the cheaper Basaglar. I have used Lantus for 20 years without significant damage associated with being diabetic for almost 40 years. It is working so why the change?

@oldgoaty @andy11575245 @ghost_wales No, but my Muslim and Jewish friends are entitled to practice their religion without scrutiny! As for my test strips and lantus, I have explained.

@viccsilver I'm in Rochester area and have lantus if you need it. Pen form.

@BernieSanders Neighbor: Can you pu med for me ? Me: Sure. What how much? Neighbor: Januvia. It’s $100. Me: What are you buying a year’s supply? Neighbor: No it’s for 30 tablets. Me: Are you crazy? Well after research, her $100 is the copay. Good Rx shows the cheapest price for that med.

@steve_hanke Prof. you should worry about medicne and food prices in the US. Insulin without insurance is $500 (Lantus) Sanofi. Life Saving Heart Drug $1000-1500 with insurance. Modi cannot help Mr Trump. As you say US most powerful country in the world reduce your debt which is trailing!

@LiquorElixir @ghost_wales Spoke to both. There seemed to be issues on logistics. Considering that lantus is EU it is understandable, but now it is noticeable!

@LiquorElixir @ghost_wales Test strips seem to be the issue. Having to wait longer than usual for the lantus. That’s happened quite often at the moment.

Need Lantus in NYC ASAP. twitter.com/viccsilver/sta…

Positive trial results for Lannetts insulin biosimilar: US firm Lannett has completed a successful trial of their candidate insulin biosimilar which was compared to Sanofis blockbuster insulin product Lantus. bioportfol.io/RND27S

14 days on #Tresiba. Very successful so far & very pleased with results. Feel so much better & less spikes during day too. Lantus wasn't working for me, I didn't think a different long acting would make any difference thankfully DSN thought differently! #diabetes #type1diabetes

@Jandelliott Dosing, I'll be purposely vague here... IIRC, I was using ~ 12 units per day of Lantus.. There was a calculator online that said for my BMI 8 units of Tresiba (the 100 version) would do, and that's what I use. But I usually use 10 units per day instead. I inject it once a day.

@Jandelliott Ditching Lantus after being on it for only like a year (and switching to Tresiba) was a great move for me. Lantus didn't last a full 24 hours for me, and my BG would end up high. I don't have that problem w/ Tresiba though. I switched 3, going on 4, years ago...
