Official Answer by Drugs.com 9 Mar 2016

Tresiba (insulin degludec) is a long-acting man-made insulin that lowers levels of glucose (sugar) in the blood in patients with either type 1 or type 2 diabetes.

Tresiba is an insulin given once-daily and provides a long duration of action beyond 42 hours. While long-acting insulin should normally be injected subcutaneously at the same time every day, you can dose Tresiba at any time of the day, if needed.

Tresiba is available in the FlexTouch device, a prefilled insulin pen. The Tresiba U-200 FlexTouch can deliver a single dose of up to 160 units and lasts up to 8 weeks without refrigeration (at 85 degrees F or less) once in use. Do not refrigerate once product is in use.

The most common side effects with Tresiba include hypoglycemia (low blood sugar), allergic reactions, injection site reactions, pitting at the injection site (lipodystrophy), itching, rash, edema (fluid build-up), and weight gain. Tresiba is manufactured by Novo Nordisk in Plainsboro, New Jersey.
