Check this out. Just Googled the Tresiba-people are taking it every 2 days!!
What’s Really Different About Tresiba?
What’s new about Tresiba is that it is actually a long-lasting basal insulin. It stays effective for 42 hours between doses, meaning it offers patients the flexibility to take some injections every other day, if they need to. Granted, Novo recommends that patients take it daily and that’s what the FDA’s approved it for, but with that 42-hour effectiveness it offers flexibility unprecedented by other background insulins.
So let’s say you take one Tresiba dose on Monday at 9 a.m. You could theoretically wait to take the next dose until Tuesday at 5 p.m., and you might want to take Ryzodeg instead with dinner before you take the next dose of Tresiba on Wednesday morning at 9 a.m. again. Go, flexibility!
Another unique aspect of this new Tresiba is that it’s available in both U100 and U200 concentrations. In the U100 pen, you can give a max of 80 units for a single dose, while in the U200 pen, you can give a maximum single dose of 160 units. That’s way more than any competitors offer, and a big benefit for anyone with T2 who needs large amounts of insulin.
