Is lantus (insulin glargine) dose the same as normal syringe injection? Should it be applied three times a day?

Is lantus (insulin glargine) dose the same as normal syringe injection? Should it be applied three times a day?

Please clarify: Hi. I don't understand your question. Lantus (insulin glargine) is only given once per day (not 3 times/day). Lantus (insulin glargine) is a basal insulin (flat, non-peaking) and does not cover meal insulin requirements, which are the 3 times/day injections. The dose of Lantus (insulin glargine) is determined on an individual basis, but if you mean is the dose from a Lantus (insulin glargine) pen the same as the dose from a vial using a syringe, the answer is yes. ...Read more

Mri arthrogram can help, but it sounds like you are going to require a shoulder arthroscopy. Rotator cuff tear, while possible, is less likely. Good luck! ...Read more
