(insulin-degludec-ultra-long-acting)

Insulin is a naturally occurring hormone made by the pancreas that helps our body use or store the glucose (sugar) it gets from food. For people with Diabetes, either the pancreas does not make enough insulin to meet the body's requirements or the body cannot properly use the insulin that is made.

The recommended dose of insulin depends on how much natural insulin your pancreas is producing and how well your body is able to use the insulin. Your doctor or diabetes educator will determine the appropriate dose for you according to various lifestyle factors and your blood glucose levels.

Your dose of insulin should be injected subcutaneously (under the skin) exactly as instructed by your doctor or diabetes educator. Do not inject insulin degludec into a vein and do not use insulin degludec in insulin infusion pumps. Insulin degludec is injected under the skin once daily. In addition to insulin degludec, a fast-acting insulin is usually used to control the impact of food intake on blood glucose levels during the day. There are many variations of insulin dosing.

Many things can affect the dose of medication that a person needs, such as body weight, other medical conditions, and other medications. If your doctor has recommended a dose different from the ones listed here, do not change the way that you are taking the medication without consulting your doctor.

Insulin degludec should be clear and colourless. Do not use the insulin if you notice anything unusual in the appearance of the solution, such as cloudiness, discoloration, or clumping. It is not necessary to shake or rotate the vial before use. It should not be mixed with any other insulins.

It is important to take Tresiba Flextouch (Insulin-degludec-ultra-long-acting) exactly as prescribed by your doctor. The timing of insulin with respect to your meals is crucial to keeping blood glucose under control and preventing unwanted side effects. 

If you miss a dose, inject it as soon as possible as long as there is at least 8 hours until your next dose. If there is less than 8 hours until your next scheduled dose, skip the missed dose and continue with your regular dosing schedule. Do not take a double dose to make up for a missed one. If you are not sure what to do after missing a dose, contact your doctor or pharmacist for advice.

Do not stop using Tresiba Flextouch (Insulin-degludec-ultra-long-acting) without consulting your doctor. When insulin degludec or any other insulin is stopped, blood glucose levels can become dangerously high.

Store unopened Penfill® cartridges and FlexTouch® pre-filled insulin pens in the refrigerator until needed. They may be used until the expiry date on the label. If necessary, they may be stored at room temperature for 8 weeks. Never allow insulin to freeze.

Insulin that is currently in use may be kept at room temperature (below 30°C) for no more than 8 weeks and then discarded. Do not expose insulin to extremely hot temperatures or to sunlight. Keep insulin out of the reach of children.

Do not dispose of medications in wastewater (e.g. down the sink or in the toilet) or in household garbage. Ask your pharmacist how to dispose of medications that are no longer needed or have expired.
