Very very frustrated today. My insurance is forcing me to stop Tresiba and to use Toujeo. My family currently is using UHC. And unfortunately, my Endo will not provide a Prior Auth until I’ve tried all options. Maybe I need to find a new Endo who will fight for me…
So yeah, during a global pandemic my insurance and doctor think it’s a good idea to switch everything up on my diabetes treatment. Also, the concentration in Toujeo is different (300 units per mL), so how do I figure out my dosage?
I few questions about Toujeo for those who have tried it.
- What was your overall opinion of the long acting insulin?
- Did you experience any side effects?
- For those switching from another long-acting insulin, how did you determine the dosage? I’m asking because Toujeo has a different concentration?
- Did anyone have to split the dose?
As always, thanks for the advice.
