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).

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

Amount?: Remember that the veins are carrying oxygen-poor blood back to the lungs. Small amounts of air are quickly incorporated into the de-oxygenated hemoglobin which is "oxygen hungry". Air in the veins is generally well tolerated. It is not tolerated at all when injected into an artery. Even a tiny amount results in "air embolism" which paradoxically deprives served tissues of oxygen carried by blood. ...Read more
