What is Basaglar?

Basaglar is a long-acting form of insulin used to reduce high blood sugar levels. It’s prescribed to:

  • Adults with type 1 or type 2 diabetes
  • Children aged six or over with type 1 diabetes

Basaglar can help you lower your blood sugar levels, by working in the same way as the insulin your body naturally produces. The medication helps your cells absorb sugar from your blood. Basaglar is slow-acting, so one injection can keep working for up to 24 hours. You inject Basaglar under your skin (subcutaneous injection), using a syringe or a prefilled injectable KwikPen.

Basaglar active ingredients

The active ingredient in Basaglar is called insulin glargine. It’s a type of synthetic (man-made) insulin that’s similar to the insulin your body makes naturally. One of the main differences is that it has been designed to be slower acting.

When you inject Basaglar under your skin, insulin glargine is released into your bloodstream. Insulin glargine travels around your body and attaches itself to cells. As it does so, it causes your cells to release a substance that helps them absorb sugar from your blood. Insulin glargine can keep working for up to 24 hours, covering your insulin needs for up to a day.

Basaglar side effects & Basaglar drug interactions

When Basaglar does cause side effects, the following are the most common: 

  • Reactions at the site of injection, like itching, rashes, skin thickening, or pits forming in your skin (lipodystrophy)
  • Weight gain
  • Allergic reactions
  • Low blood sugar

In rare instances, Basaglar can cause more serious side effects. These may include:

  • Severe allergic reactions to the medication
  • Heart failure
  • Your blood sugar falling too low and dangerous levels (hypoglycemia)
  • Low potassium levels in your blood (hypokalemia)

Basaglar can interact with other medications, including: 

  • Thiazolidinedione (TZD), taken to treat diabetes
  • Any other diabetes medications
  • Beta-blockers, taken to treat high blood pressure
  • Angiotensin-converting enzyme (ACE) inhibitors, taken to treat high blood pressure and certain heart conditions
  • Sulfonamide antibiotics
  • Fibrates, taken to lower blood triglyceride levels
  • Corticosteroids such as cortisone
  • Protease inhibitors, taken for HIV/AIDS
  • Diuretics, taken to make you urinate more
  • Thyroid hormones, taken to treat thyroid gland disorders
  • Pentamidine, an antimicrobial medication

If you’re unsure if you’re taking any of these, take the packaging of all your medications and supplements to your doctor or pharmacist.
