I have been diabetic for 31 years in the last couple I have lost all control of my weight and blood sugars so very worried about this being a problem.
Tresiba, is an ultra long acting basal insulin which can be used by people with type 1 or type 2 diabetes. It lasts for up to 42 hours offering greater flexibility as to when it can be injected each day.
Trials have shown Tresiba to be helpful in reducing incidence of hypoglycemia (low blood sugar) compared with other basal insulin.
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 (probably due to the anabolic effect of insulin).
Speak with your doctor if you are concerned.
