Lantus contains Insulin Glargine which is a long-acting insulin that provides consistent, all-day sugar control. It works like your body's natural insulin. Insulin glargine is a long acting preparation. It regulates carbohydrate, protein and fat metabolism by inhibiting hepatic glucose production and lipolysis and enhancing peripheral glucose disposal. Insulin binds to the receptor. Receptor-bound insulin lowers blood glucose by facilitating cellular uptake of glucose into skeletal muscle and adipose tissue and by inhibiting the output of glucose from the liver.
Lantus is used in the treatment of diabetes.
