Why A1C and
blood sugar levels matter

Do you really need to test your blood sugar and get your A1C tests, too? The answer is yes. Why? Because together they tell the bigger picture of how well you're controlling your diabetes. Your A1C measures average blood sugar levels over the past 2-3 months. While daily blood sugar tests show what your blood sugar is at that moment. The chart helps you see more about how these two numbers are related.

 

Goals are for many nonpregnant adults with diabetes. Target A1C levels will be individualized by your healthcare professional.

 

Toujeo should be taken once a day at the same time each day.

A Toujeo difference:
A more gradual release than Lantus®, the most-prescribed long-acting insulin

Once-daily Toujeo is a long-acting insulin that works like your body's natural insulin. The gradual release gives you no pronounced peak or wear-off between doses.
