Welcome to your Tresiba® Starter Kit

If your health care provider prescribed Tresiba® to help manage your diabetes, you're in the right place. Below you'll find the information you need to get started on Tresiba®

Let’s get you started

Your health care provider may have prescribed you Tresiba®, a once-daily, long-acting insulin that controls blood sugar for 24 hours for powerful A1C reduction. Once injected, insulin helps the sugar in your blood get into your cells, providing those cells with the energy needed to fuel your body. One of the things that makes Tresiba® different from other long-acting insulins is the slow and steady release that works the way the body’s insulin does.

For adults, any-time-of-day dosing means you don’t have to worry if you miss a dose of insulin

If you miss a dose of Tresiba®, you have options! Adults with type 2 diabetes can take once-daily Tresiba® at any time of day, if needed. It’s best to take Tresiba® at the same time every day, but if you miss or delay your regular daily dose, take Tresiba® as soon as you remember, then continue with your regular dosing schedule. Just make sure to leave at least 8 hours between doses.
