Trujeo dosing with a pen

Recommended Posts

Just picked up some Trujeo. It is U300, but the pens are marked off in per unit dosage. 

 

With the lantus pens, I would dial up to 30 and shoot. With Trujeo, it's the same.

 

If you're buying it in vials, U-300 is a different story. I'd rather go into that because I have the pens. (No personal experience with the vials.)

Ohhh.. shooting is much better. Less liquid to inject + the action of the squeeze top is a lot more smooth. Also, much less wasted fluid when you remove the pen tip -- the left over drop is not as big.

Thanks

I was wondering how you dialed up the right measure.

 

I'm seriously thinking of going on this stuff.

Yes, one unit of Trujeo is just one unit of insulin, but the amount of liquid in one unit of Trujeo is physically smaller, than one liquid unit of Lantus.

Read the package instructions.

They suggest using 80% of your Lanthus dose to start.

 

I split Lanthus 75 units at night 25 in the morning.

 

I'll try 80 units of the U300 at night and see what happens.

 

I can always cover a high with Novalog
