Toujeo is proven to consistently reduce A1C
In clinical studies, Toujeo provided stable blood sugar control all day and all night
In one study, blood sugar levels stayed within the American Diabetes Association target zone for more than 24 hours.*
Toujeo should be taken at the same time every day, once a day.
Results based on a study of 30 patients with type 2 diabetes; study size is typical for this type of study. May not apply in everyday use. Target zone: 80-130 mg/dL.

The safety of Toujeo has been studied in clinical trials.
It’s important to know the most common and serious side effects that have been observed with Toujeo. For all insulins, including Toujeo, the most common side effect is hypoglycemia. Ask your doctor about the signs and symptoms of hypoglycemia, how to monitor your blood sugar, and what to do if you have a hypoglycemic event.
These are not all the possible side effects of Toujeo. Talk with your doctor about possible side effects.

Understanding Time in Range and Continuous Glucose Monitoring
Time in Range is the amount of time your blood sugar levels are within a healthy range. This is important because it helps your doctor know how well your treatment is working.
To accurately monitor Time in Range, consider a Continuous Glucose Monitoring (CGM) system. It’s a small sensor attached to your body that automatically tests your glucose every few minutes. In addition to measuring Time In Range, most CGM systems can alert you when your blood sugar levels are high or low. Ask your doctor if a CGM system can help you manage diabetes.
Toujeo SoloStar and Toujeo Max SoloStar are long-acting insulin pens
The body releases insulin throughout the day and during meals to keep your blood sugar stable. Insulins like Toujeo are meant to do essentially the same. Taken once a day, long-acting insulin simulates how your body controls blood sugar.

What Insulin Does
Insulin is a naturally occurring hormone your pancreas produces that regulates blood sugar (glucose) in your body. It’s like a key that lets blood sugar into cells to use for energy.
About type 2 diabetes
Most people who have diabetes have type 2 diabetes. For these people, the pancreas does not produce enough insulin and/or the body can’t properly use the insulin it produces to keep their blood sugar controlled. You may hear healthcare professionals refer to it as insulin resistance.
About type 1 diabetes
For people with type 1 diabetes, the body does not produce insulin at all. It’s managed with insulin and other treatments.

Important Safety Information
Do not use Toujeo if you have low blood sugar or if you are allergic to insulin or any of the ingredients in Toujeo.
Do not share your pen(s) with other people, even if the needle has been changed. You may give other people a serious infection or get a serious infection from them.
Before starting Toujeo, tell your doctor about all your medical conditions, including if you have liver or kidney problems, if you are pregnant or planning to become pregnant, or if you are breastfeeding or planning to breastfeed.
Change (rotate) your injection sites within the area you chose with each dose to reduce your risk of getting pitted or thickened skin (lipodystrophy) and skin with lumps (localized cutaneous amyloidosis) at the injection sites. Do not use the same spot for each injection or inject where the skin is pitted, thickened, lumpy, tender, bruised, scaly, hard, scarred, or damaged.
Heart failure can occur if you are taking insulin together with pills called TZDs (thiazolidinediones), even if you have never had heart failure or other heart problems. If you have heart failure, it may get worse while you take TZDs with Toujeo. Your treatment with TZDs and Toujeo may need to be changed or stopped by your doctor if you have new or worsening heart failure. Tell your doctor if you have any new or worsening symptoms including:
- Shortness of breath
- Sudden weight gain
- Swelling of your ankles or feet
Tell your doctor about all the medications you take, including OTC medicines, vitamins, and supplements, and herbal supplements.
Toujeo should be taken at the same time once a day. Test your blood sugar levels daily while using any insulin. Do not change your dose or type of insulin without talking to your doctor. Verify you have the correct insulin before each injection. Do NOT use a syringe to remove Toujeo from your pen. Your dose for Toujeo may be different from other insulins you have taken. Any change of insulin should be made cautiously and only under medical supervision.
Do NOT dilute or mix Toujeo with any other insulin or solution. It will not work as intended and you may lose blood sugar control, which could be serious. Use Toujeo only if the solution is clear and colorless with no particles visible.
While using Toujeo, do not drive or operate heavy machinery until you know how Toujeo affects you. Don’t drink alcohol or use other medicines that contain alcohol.
The most common side effect of Toujeo is low blood sugar (hypoglycemia), which may be serious and life-threatening. Severe hypoglycemia may cause harm to your heart or brain. Symptoms of serious low blood sugar may include shaking, sweating, fast heartbeat, and blurred vision. The long-acting effect of Toujeo may delay recovery from low blood sugar compared to shorter-acting insulins.
Toujeo may cause severe allergic reactions that can lead to death. Get medical help right away if you have:
- A rash over your whole body
- Shortness of breath
- Swelling of your face, tongue, or throat
- Extreme drowsiness, dizziness, or confusion
- Trouble breathing
- Fast heartbeat
Toujeo may have additional side effects including swelling, weight gain, low potassium, and injection site reactions which may include change in fat tissue, skin thickening, redness, swelling, and itching.
Toujeo SoloStar and Toujeo Max SoloStar are single-patient-use prefilled insulin pens. It is important to perform a safety test when using a new pen for the first time. Talk to your doctor about proper injection technique and follow instructions in the Instruction Leaflet that comes with your Toujeo SoloStar or Toujeo Max SoloStar pen.
