When it’s time for my patients to start taking basal insulin, I consider a number of factors when deciding which to prescribe. First and foremost, I look for an insulin that provides A1C and FPG reductions and has been proven to help patients reach their blood sugar goals. I also look for a flat and stable profile, and of course safety plays a role in the decision as well. That’s why I often prescribe Tresiba® to my adult patients with diabetes.
