Your insulin dosage will be prescribed as a number of insulin units per day. If you have type 2 diabetes and have never taken insulin before, typically your doctor will start you on a low dose. Then they'll slowly adjust your dose over time to reach the amount that's right for you based on your morning blood sugar numbers.
The American Diabetes Association recommends a target morning blood sugar level (before a meal) of 80 to 130 mg/dL.
Be sure to ask your health care provider how many units of Tresiba® you should take and when/how you should share your morning blood sugar results.
For adults with diabetes, Tresiba® should be taken once daily, any time of day. While taking your insulin at the same time every day is recommended, if you miss or delay your Tresiba® dose, simply take it as soon as you can, then retum to your normal dosing schedule. Just be sure to leave at least 8 hours between doses.
The Tresiba® vial allows dosing in half-unit increments. This may be helpful if you or your child is on a very small dose of Tresiba® (ie, less than 5 units).
