On September 13, Alexis M. McKee, MD, CDCES had an article published on “Endocrine Web,” titled “What Is Insulin Glargine and What Are Its Side Effects?” 

Insulin glargine is a long-acting insulin, sometimes referred to as basal. When glargine was discovered, it was a game-changer in diabetes management because it allowed those with diabetes to stop using NPH insulin, “which causes a large drop in blood sugar when it peaks.” 

In the article, McKee dives into how insulin glargine works, commons side effects, dosages, tips for storage and travel, and possible alternatives.
